A Solution for Better News
Because of goings-on during the night
the morning news is rarely bright.
I think the problem might be solved
if the planet never revolved
but kept its face in full sunlight
untouched by the evils of night.
That way morning news might be
less depressing for everybody.
But, then, and a likely upshot
after years of bad news, the shock
of waking up to a world of good news
could be fatal, more bad news.
