I Forgot To Read The Newspaper

It’s early 
Not a sound from the street
Newspaper lies in the driveway
Where it landed
Some time ago.

When I get up 
The sun is also up
Not a cloud in the sky
So why should I read the newspaper
On this beautiful morning 
To read about politicians
Taking bribes
Projects stalled by demonstrators
Economy still in the toilet
An actor arrested for God knows what.

They say
Not reading leaves one uninformed
But reading leaves me misinformed
Avoiding the need to choose
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
I choose to read the comics
Yes, those cartoon characters
Unbelievably funny
Occasionally making a point
On things we ignore.

I take the comics seriously 
As I sip from a coffee cup 
Carefully placed nearby
Casually savoring each drop
As I contemplate the day 
And the morning leisurely wears on.

    I think you're a kindred soul. Liked this. I think most things I read in the news are more gossip and propoganda than any useful info.
