Food for thought…

Like Aesop’s fabled raven
dropping stones to raise the water
media piles words under the surface
raising the level of consciousness.

Oh happy fools who plug ears
resisting the weight of worry
reserving senses for heaven’s rain
more precious than stoney accusations.

Has America’s thirst for news
grown so insatiable and needy
it will gorge on half formed thoughts
rather than filter the feed for truths?
