Here is my first homework assignment (poem inspired by a random object) Newspaper A dangerous fuel For the ones who are clearly Addicted to shock and surprise? Exposing the truth? Or containing entirely Of ink, paper, black and white lies?

Or maybe impartial, a keeper of History? (Which, every ten years… it gets Repeated, removed or rewritten by victors, rephrased or restored or revamped...) It gives secrets live And seduces them shamelessly No longer behind closed doors. Or maybe extracts With precision and playfulness Facts that no one could ignore?
