News Can Make You Mad



News can make you worry
News can make you still
News can make you hurry
News can make you ill

News can make you foolish
News can make you wise
News can make you mulish
News can make you rise

News can make you fervent
News can make you lull
News can make you servant
News can make you dull

News can make you seedy
News can make you try
News can make you needy
News can make you die

News can make you fester
News can make you hail
News can make you pester
News can make you veil

News can make you tearful
News can make you glad
News can make you fearful
News can make you mad
