Subtle Journalistic Yawn

The nuanced global metrosexuality
of the NYT,
the progressive patrician narcissism
of New Yorker,
The dark democratic dying
of the Washington Post,
the salty smugness
of Atlantic,
the effete unstrung irrelevance
of Harper’s
Newsweek, Time,
even Life itself:

These are passing away.

Pressing Limericks

KING LIMERICKS BREAKING LIMERICKS BREAKING LIMERICKS BREAKING LIMERICKS BREAKING LIMERICKS BREAKING LIMERICKS 

STOP the PRESSES while we pop the stresses!

EXtry, EXtry, read all about it:

Fake news pays dues to sing rural blues in red-state hues.
Nanny-state networks accuse & civil fury ensues !
See special edition on CIA sedition :

FAKE NEWS: it’s the virus du jour
of the global elitists. The poor
are more prone to believe
it’s a plot to deceive
and no government offers a cure.

The rural red states stand accused
By the quingdom whose queen they refused.
It’s so hillbilly-larious:
all of them various
voters now left unamused.
