The good news is – that it won’t last


Have you heard the news today?
The lion nursing a mouse
or the one about the puppy
Designed to make you happy

Did you hear the bad today?
An earthquake killing many
must have made you sad
The ship that drowned
cops shooting another man
and killing of a hero in Pakistan

The bad news about happiness
is that it won’t last
but worry not
The good news about sadness and outrage
is that it too goes fast

Being swung from one end to next
The pendulum goes on
puppeteers on top decide
Which way, which one

  1. I love this piece Parmis especially the ending. We are all puppets to the puppeteers that hold the strings it is just that many of us don’t realize it. You’ve sent an important message. Well done.

  2. Thanks. It’s good to speak the truth. Well done.

    I had to unplug from the mainstream media in 2002 because I was tired of have my emotions manipulated. I couldn’t think. And that’s the point of the emotional manipulation perpetrated by the media. After all, the media is owned by the same financial aristocrats who currently have our nation under siege.

    Now, I only hear about things such as earthquakes when a friend or neighbor tells me. It’s easier to bear this way. It doesn’t take a weatherman to tell which way the wind blows.
