Today’s prompt http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/11/08/daily-prompt-connection-2/ caught my eye and I wondered, what is the most uninteresting news story I could find? After scouring the gritty world of tips for a better scrambled egg and the stock market, I found the unshiny gem I was looking for:
Someone took a picture of Justin Beiber sleeping. This utterly mundane news-that-I-can’t-believe-articles-were-written-about, inspired me to write a poem. So, in honor of Hermann Rorschach (I’m so sorry, man), here it is. Enjoy 🙂
Oops, a camera caught beiber sleeping in bed
How dare he rest his talented head!
But maybe he just needed some r and r
Beiber is America’s number one star.
A girl took pictures of him, oh that’s not right!
He’s too young to be doing…that thing at night!
No, J Beibs is too old to be making this mistake
He just turned nineteen for goodness’ sake!
But society shouldn’t care, all he does is entertain
Let him sleep in strange places and rot his brain.
Then again, he needs his fans to have his back
The beleibers are the best defense for a media attack.
Thank goodness this story is at the top of the news,
It would be terrible if important events are skipped for page views.
Like typhoons, food stamps and health care reform,
Nuclear treaties? Fracking? Those things are out of the norm!
Let’s focus on things that don’t affect our life
What need do we have for other’s strife?
So gaze upon beiber and form an opinion’s that’s best
Consider this your first media Rorschach test.
