A poetic journey of current day media items in Australia and the effects had on their audience


Winged steel crashes down from the sky
Gathering in droves, false leaders cry

Innocents painted with dirty brush
Silently within, society crushed

Protector of carriage steeps mindless spite
Short-lived glory, shared then liked

Dear child to have suffered sickening fate
The remaining listening, lie in wait

Small fuss to be had for news of a cure
The tolls too great, will many procure

Bombardment of news, or really is it
Handpicked tragedy, drama and misery

Candour at hand for all to see
Seek the answers, will we covet them
 Let it be?
