The Art of Tetman Callis Poems this is the news

this is the news

this is the bbc news, the real thing,
coming at the top of the hour
immediately after a broadcast of the can-can
dedicated to an old guy for his birthday (he turns 86)

okay, here it is, here goes

couple robbed and murdered on their honeymoon

opposition politicians circle for the kill

scores of people killed in a stampede

a dozen climbers missing up a mountain

a couple of guys rescued at sea

an oddity of nature

the weather is rainy or not
or rainy and not

there are several traffic problems, listen close

that’s it, i don’t know what to do with it either
except do this
