fact or fiction, the news has it all

I read the news
and wonder why
the fuck I even bothered
when there is nothing good
hidden in the words
and all the articles
set my anxiety into overdrive

I tried only looking
at good news
but found it too
happily pretentious
and unrelateable

I want to live in a world
where everything
in the news doesn't feel like
an impending apocalypse
is waiting just around the corner

Wars, dementia studies
today eggs will kill you
tomorrow they won't
everything will give you cancer

No wonder we're afraid
when we have nothing real
and present to hold onto
in a time where everything
seems to be going wrong
