Just musing on words spoken
467 words and an author byline
but I am only interested in the headline
At least 19 dead in Mosul attack
2 days after a teen/shark battle sunbather's back
I collect and trade them like germs in a greasy spoon
to pass on to the innocent paying consumer soon

Today's top story; a gleam in his eye
I collect his words as they stream by
Blair's son is going to be a republican intern indeed
50,000 still missing six months after tsunami waters recede
there is a video showing scarred land of course
former presidents shaking their head in remorse

467 words and an author byline
I am addicted to headlines
five words scream, "Woman In Car Already Dead!"
"Shaq doesn't need more money!"
His coach said
Jordan bans Saddam's new novel, free expression be damned.
One more final crusade for Billy Graham.
