Vicarious this worry and thrill,
Shaking your fist, but you're watching still
The images play out, live updates and feeds
You're not helping out by feeding their greed

Sensational! A positive word once upon a time
Now you've the deaths of thousands burned in your eyes
Sex, war, angst, and fear.
Making a profit on lives spent year after year

It's news! What people want and consume
But did you have to glorify them? Go out with a boom?
Is that ok? What you show?
Do you care for truth or business growth?
