The News You Have

However important you may believe

It to be;

I really don’t want

The news you have.

But, only too sadly

Your whole body,

Demeanour

Broadcast it:

You have burned

The bridges we knew;

Say to Hell with it and

Two fingers to those

Who don’t agree.

Is it O.K.

My long-time friend,

If I worry –

Just a little –

For you?
