TOMORROW’S NEWS TODAY

will be much like yesterday’s

not so different from that to be

disseminated the day after tomorrow

.

World’s Biggest Rabbit still stolen

very old Greek man still awaits burial

.

Pyroclastic clouds over St Vincent

as La Soufrière fumes

.

latest football results

different combinations same names

reconfigured numbers

keep population happy with games

.

wealth to be redistributed

amongst wealthy

more bread at food-banks for needy

acts of charity headlined

prove rich are not really so greedy

.

China, Russia, USA military manoeuvres

under-stated

news must not be too scary

.

English lambing season

cute pictures abound

wobbly woolly legs and tails

bottle-fed by volunteer

shepherdess called, Mary

.

variants of Covid-19 and subsequent vaccinations

analysed at length expanded in fine detail

opinion pieces and ten top tips

how to keep fit and healthy

thoughts on how to keep strong and mentally stable

millions google for places they can spend vacation

.

Minneapolis trial progresses

horrors carried out by men with guns multiply

in each of planet’s broken-hearted nations

.

plastics still simple and cheap

flooding oceans

ice caps continue to melt

opinion is polar bears might soon have something

on which they still can float

.

tomorrow’s news is just today’s

as read and heard and seen

every story nuanced and massaged

to keep people balanced

on knife-edge of fear

nothing different from past years

.

without the news boring into our minds

without the thud and blunder

all the patronising advice

do you think we might see a bold head-line

one dawn that simply reads:

EVERYONE WORKING HARD

EVERYONE IS BEING NICE
