Tabloids

Avoid
The paranoid,
Pessimistic androids
That write the tabloids.

They only care about statistics.
The world they present is unrealistic,
Completely and undoubtedly materialistic.
Which seems to be a common characteristic.

Sex and scandal dominate the ink.
They tell us how to act and what to think.
Rose tinted words disguise the darker shade of pink.
To keep us afloat and ensure the morale doesn't sink.

The truth is censored and diluted.
The world that we live in is to heavily polluted.
Those with power talk, the rest are forever muted.
With government support their stories can never be disputed.

Kela lewis-morin
something i wrote recently i was inspired by the factual basis tabloids are based on and thought i would encorporate some rhyme to add to the smoothness of the direction of the poem. hope it works let me know what you think guys :)

I'm not a huge fan of entire stanzas ending on the same rhyme because it is so harsh, but I think the material covered overshadowed that for me. The realistic nature of the topic at hand and the playful technique which you used to write it was an odd juxtaposition, but I enjoyed it.

Maybe this is the reason I feel like entirely blocking out the outside world? You'd think people would have something better t do with their lives, but instead, this IS their lives.
Just plain sad if you ask me.

Honestly. Go promote recycling, feed the hungry, or give money to the poor. You seem to have enough free time, I mean you're reading TABLOIDS aren't you?
People need to realize there is more to life than celebities.

I have to say, this sounds a little choppy to me, and it doesn't really flow as well as your other work. But, nice concept anyways! :D

I loved this type of scheme, it reminds me an hip-hop song because of the rhyme, the fluency and the critics to society.

This is very good. Rhyme schemes can be difficult and can even wreck a good poem, but you handled it very well and I think the rhyme improves the poem. It's very well written - I like the style.

This is one reason I hate reading/watching the news. Everything's biased, factual information is becoming more and more scarce.

I like this.

These are my thoughts exactly and I agree. It is sad. It's a poem so true and
to the point that you cannot help but really understand it! It's far from obscure.

I have accepted this into the Group :iconpoetrys-renaissance:



Thank You for suggesting this be Featured!

HAHA! This is keen wit if I ever read it. Great stuff, good presentation and satire of such things that should not be in the media. The rhyme is sharp.

Rose tinted words disguise the darker shade of pink. - Brilliant line dude. I still think your poetry suffers under you forcing forms upon them, it is obvious why you chose some of the words, as they have to fit in your scheme. But that's just me, everyone thinks differently. I'd recommend closing your eyes and rewriting it such as it would the most aesthetically pleasing to listen to, not watch.

Oh tabloids, I've never put to much stock in them, then I find I have very few sources to get my news from.

Yes, well I think its almost necessary to get multiple sources of the same story or something (then I just wind up reading BBC World online anyways, which I suppose is supposed to be somewhat reliable at least)
