Short And Long

Life is short,

Some stories long,

And unless one is

New to the planet

Or a raving idiot,

One doesn’t believe

Everything

That newscasters babble.

That’s written on Facebook

Or in the National Enquirer,

And one is never surprised

At what people do,

But sometimes surprised

At who.
