a poem by Joan Wile
author, "Grandmothers Against the War: Getting Off Our Fannies and Standing Up for Peace" (Citadel Press, May 2008)

The media
they feedya
sensation not sense
you, public, so dense,
allow them to leadya

They milk the inane
until we're insane
They fixate on Palin
day out and day in
until we're in pain

They're hung up on Hill
obsessed about Bill
They force feed us Brittney
Expose ev'ry titty
until we feel ill

Why can't they relate
succinctly and straight
the substantive news
devoid of their views
Let US calculate
our eventual fate
