Why do you watch the news, mother
It always makes you get so sad
You wake up feeling in the pink
Then all your spirits sink
Don’t you know you can drive yourself mad?
I saw you in the Hat shop this morning
You were trying on velvet and fur
I think maroon is too dark for you
Try coral , eyes will spark for you
Then you won’t get mal de mere!
Yet if we don’t read a news precis
We won’t know if Hitler’s come back
So choose very wisely
Then act if it makes you feel black.
What do we need to know daily
About the PM and his friends
Use your own judgement
About the repugnant
We hope to avoid a dead end
