Humour Don’t Sell Papers

I’ve just read today’s paper
It’s full of doom and gloom
Murders, killing, destruction, death
Children being groomed

Headlines blare out constantly
There’s so much negativity
(The paper I have closed)

Why can’t I read, enjoy myself
With lots of humour, rife?
Instead of being subjected to
This gutter side of life?

Humour don’t sell papers….


More of my work can be seen at Flippant, Comic and Serious
