Imagine...
His features were solemn, terse and tense
His face was pale, in anticipation
He spoke deliberately, tried to make sense
Of the latest news event to befall
Our troubled nation now.

His face was pale in anticipation
Leaders’ decisions had caused a ripple
Of words he conveyed to the nation
They were not uplifting, there is ‘no joy’
In his news for viewers today.

He spoke deliberately, tried to make sense
The images flashed across his desk
Parsed his words, spoke of defense
His hands clenched his notes tight
He blinked back tears tonight.

The latest news event to befall
Becomes his last news report ever
For everyone he speaks to now
As he tries hard not to quiver,
Orange-red images fall.

Our troubled nation now
reflects a troubled world;
Our solar system’s bow
is the end of planet Earth.
For our newsman’s final story,
he has a front seat berth.
