Check the latest poem by RJ Wiechecki titled News Boy (see below).  In the world of fake news, it is hard to imagine what a news boy selling papers would say on the streets as they did in the turn of the 20th Century would have to say.  But to be sure, they would a frenzy with today’s culture.  The only problem is they would be trying to capture of attention from walking dead zombies in the streets with cellphones strapped to them.  Without future ado, News Boys!  Wait isn’t that a Christian band or something…  I promise no apocalyptic visions.

 

News Boy

Come and get it!
Get your times right here!
the news here is sensational—
so sensational it will make you senseless—
the sensation so powerful, it’s organismic!
it will make you have an organism.

Come and get your times right here!
Page 16 will knock your socks off.
But don’t panic!
Page 17 will tell you how to put them back on.

Come and get your times right here!
Not only one but two so your never sure.

Don’t miss out on the scandalous!
Suspend your disbelief freeze frame
in a world of black and white
where you can buy the truth
a few shekels at cost of a lie!

Worth doesn’t come any cheaper than in print.
