The Cat



I held him high above my shoulders
and watched them call "The Cat!"
The News being quick to show him off
for what was called "The Fat!"

Then told him that he'd made the News
for what it was to act -
A crazy, common scary way
of what it was to fact -

That all good News has cheered you up
for what has come to man
When calling you depressed all day
and keeping to the plan

That making News for all the world
is lacking in it's means
When all your cats are not ignored
for what is left to scenes

That even News can spread the views
for ratings that go down
When even cats can see the world
as what it means to frown

About this poem

The News harming people with bad stories and then putting a cat video on at the end the make us think the News is worth watching again tomorrow.
