Ode to the Freedom of Cable Television
Every day on the Daily Poet we present the day's news in poetry form. Do you want to play too? Simply pick a news item and place your poem in the comments below. Poetry and news. These two were meant to be wed.
Al Gore's network is sold
but Time Warner leaves it in the cold
There will be no foreign owned news
for Americans to peruse
Might as well ship yourself
across the continental shelf
in order to be able to view
what your representatives freely scan through
