The News | Fake Poem

The News by David Michael Jackson

The news from a fake poet

is that there is no news

there are no longer handholds called facts.

All is chaos

except for the refugees

who are real

except for the children

who are real.

A fake sun sets on a fake nation

and the fake temperature rises

the fake sea rises.

The fake reasons for war

become truths for awhile.

The refugees

who are real,

the children

who are real,

die for real.
