Everybody Tells Me Everything

05 Nov

I was searching for poems I could read to my class last night, and found this poem by Ogden Nash. Besides for the guy being the sharpist wit, this side of the Atlantic, and me loving him, this poem is just too perfect for today.

Everybody Tells Me Everything




I find it very difficult to enthuse
Over the current news.
Just when you think that at least the outlook is so black that it can grow no blacker, it worsens,
And that is why I do not like the news, because there has never been an era when so many things were going so right for so many of the wrong persons.

Ogden Nash

    great poem!
    Fits very well.

    Sorta like the news is always filled with all the negative stuff, and bad news, barely ever good news.
