Have you noticed?
Waiting room clocks are LOUD!
So are the people who pass outside the door.
Why does the time go so slowly?
And why do the passing conversations seem so trivial?
Putting these things to one side for the moment
The big question is…
Will it actually be worthwhile
Spending this part of my life HERE?
Fake news is in the news
If that can be believed
What’s true or false is hard to tell
It’s so easy to be deceived
Exaggeration, if you will
Is one old type of lie
But what of calling others names
In an effort to decry?
A tweet or text, or video clip
Sent, cannot be denied
Inconsistency may also be fake
Specially to mask one’s pride
Untold volumes on library shelves
Struggle to give understanding
Yet 280 characters by themselves
Can be more commanding
