John O'Creagh has offered up another of his Facebook poems to deal with the world of the Toob.....

Have you had a look of late at talk shows?
Blather, bellow, bull and squawk shows
They’re married to a single point of view
Whether they are left or right
On at daytime or at night

Here is what they usually do
Set up foemen made of straw
Berate abuse and over-awe
Soundly tan the foemen’s hides
And claim to represent both sides
And in closing then lay down the law

Let a talk show host begin
The objective is to “win”
Never to explore a point of view
Though it makes for good TV
This fondness for a “victory”
Doesn’t help us learn what might be true

Thanks, John!
