Did you ever hear what happened the first time “The War of the Worlds” was broadcast? People heard PART of it and panicked! There are numerous tales of the End of the World with a similar reaction from some.

Write a poem about a piece of fake news; how it later turns out not to be the reality of the situation.

"Fake News"

The educated voter hears both sides.
Unfortunate, our citizen can't split
his time or work to find where Truth resides;
where Nervous Nancy's lying Left might sit.

The Left has left our borders open wide
yet need a magic pill to beat our Trump.
Let Tyranny's Majority decide
may give beloved Nation final slump.

Our Citizens, as listeners, less intent
and hear but bits and pieces of the facts.
But baby must come first inside our tent;
the voter missing part of many acts.

Ah, longing for the good old days of news
when we had but one broadcast show to know.
Let Orson warn as panicked face turns blue
when told some evil wind about to blow!

The Truth, they say, found in the final taste.
The lies of politics a dangerous place!
