Tuesday's Writing #No 12- Free Press

Tuesday's Writing  #No 12-  Free Press
Prompts this week:  scribe, clandestine, toxic
Prompts this week:  scribe, rescind, toxic

Free Press
A scribe covering politics
Fights the toxic attitudes
That try to deflect actions
By declaring fake news
Even though true journalists
Have education and ethics
Clandestine meetings take place
Reporters are told it didn’t happen
The politicians still continue
To hound, deflect and deny
Truths with innuendo
Half-truths and outright lies
The truth will still come out
The people rely on the press
For the facts you see
And the free press
Shall be defended

  1. The news seems so different these days. Still I believe in the need of a free press. (now more than ever)
