unfashionable pettiness

 

what?  Melania’s shoes

give reporters the blues

stilettos don’t seem appropo

 

snakeskin fit for a dance

paired with high-water pants

to flood zone high heels must NOT go!

 

aboard air force one

news reports come undone

the fashion disaster rehearsed

 

first lady “trumps” style

and i can’t help but smile

when FLOTUS deplanes in Converse 😉

evening news commentary

IMG_1871

 

For thoughtful minds, a mystery
to watch modern iconoclasts
destroy statues of fathers’ cast;
we cannot erase history
so why hate sculpture bitterly?
Denial will repeat the past:
agenda hides behind a mask,
mobs pave a road to anarchy.

Remember that all men bleed red,
to judge by skin is fool’s extreme.
Lament the blood spilled on our sod,
mourn hostile words in anger said,
let truth and justice reign supreme
and leave all vengeance unto God!

 


See Daily Wire’s brief comments and video by former NBA star, Charles Barkley

no news is good news?

“All things are wearisome, more than one can say.  The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.  What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again, there is nothing new under the sun.”  (Ecclesiastes 1:8)

national newscasters

political pundits

television talking heads

local celebrities

small town coffee shops

gossip grapevines;

it’s

shocking indecency

another person’s tragedy

driveling trivia comedy

that

we know sells,  as “news”–

whatever our itching ears want to hear.
