the deluge came,
inundation of disaster updates
and surging soundbites,
flooding images with
torrents of facts and figures,
down-pouring of human drama and despair,
we drown in torrid details,
soaking in a ratings revival
they saturate us with coverage,
swamping us with talking heads,
(and brilliant white teeth)
drenching us in understatements,
showering us with clichés and inanity,
submerging us with victim intrusions
and protruding news bursts,
We wouldn’t want to cloudburst on their parade!
