A view on newspapers abuse of this freedom.

There is this freedom

freedom of speach,

yet unreserved words

unrestrained speach

go delving into places

that invade ones rights,

and when they are wrong

destroy with their lies.

Headlines scream

playing with fire

as if they have been appointed

as gods messenger,

cash gliding through hands

mouths willing to cherp

yet when they are wrong

the damage lives on.

So where is the justice

with freedom of speach

has it become

so stained so obscure

inverted justice

sometimes unfair.

The alternative could be disastrous.
Reviewed by George Carroll 10/25/2009
Politicians and the media know only one way, confuse with lies, distort and never refute what you say.
