The newspaper and television news,
Make you happy or create the blues.
A baby fell into a well yesterday,
She was saved and okay, they say.
There are babies starving far away,
Accidents happening every day.
Emotions are greatly stimulated.
Events on a screen are simulated.
The media creates hate or love
For people personally known not of.
Illusions to fill our time and space,
To quietly keep us in our place.
