Depression is on the air!

With Hullabaloo 22:


In Search Of...Happy!


Is it over here? Over there?

Tell me, ‘cause I don’t know where


Gloom and doom is all I see

when I turn on my T. V, Corona or he.


I’d turn it off, but I gotta have my news

Watching sure gives me the blues


The screaming heads who run the show

flip off the high road and take the low


The newscasters always seem to gloat

for all their reports they toxic-coat.


The only thing that will change the story

is if another disaster should steal the glory.


For something positive I’m going to seek

but there’s nothing to find but bleak, bleak, bleak.

Nice work. I too agree watching the news can be a bit depressing because they report a lot of bad news. It scares a lot of people and keeps them isolated. I loved this poem though, great job.

Thank you, Doria; by no means is a hoax, like many are saying, but we're marinating in misery

It must be tough over there in Trumpland. You'll get through it. Whether I get over another unrequited love is another matter. Good luck and stay well. I mean it. What is the worst that can happen? Another woman breaks your heart or you die of Corvid 19. We are all still poets and poetry can not be killed, despite what the critics say.

Thanks, Craig, and sounds like you've had some bad luck in the love department; been there, done that--I wish you better luck
