The Planet on the Cable

By Mark Soifer

One of America's best poets looks at the nature of today's news.


I get to see and hear the news-

The under and the over views-

The killer wars, political whores-

Achievements of the predators-

Commercials flash across my face-

Like comets scorching outer space-

This has become a crazy place-

A frantic, mille second race-

Where off-the-cuff

Is quite enough-

And compassion

Out of place"

Welcome Harold-

Welcome Mabel-

To the Planet

On the Cable-
