A newspaper is a collection of half-injustices

by
 A newspaper is a collection of half-injustices
Which, bawled by boys from mile to mile,
Spreads its curious opinion
To a million merciful and sneering men,
While families cuddle the joys of the fireside
When spurred by tale of dire lone agony.
A newspaper is a court Where every one is kindly and unfairly tried By a squalor of honest men.
A newspaper is a market Where wisdom sells its freedom And melons are crowned by the crowd.
A newspaper is a game Where his error scores the player victory While another's skill wins death.
A newspaper is a symbol; It is feckless life's chronicle, A collection of loud tales Concentrating eternal stupidities, That in remote ages lived unhaltered, Roaming through a fenceless world.
