The Great Flood

Then the deluge came:
inunundation of disaster updates,
surging soundbites,
flooding us with images –
torrents of facts and figures,
downpouring of human drama and despair,
drowning in torrid details,
soaking in their ratings revival,
– saturation coverage
swamping us with talking heads,
(and brilliant white teeth)
drenching us in understatements,
showering us with clichΓ©s and inanity,
submerging us with victim intrusions
and protruding news bursts,
We wouldn’t want to cloudburst on their parade!
