Poem-A-Day #41 : Pejorism (take 2)

I felt a bit...unhappy with yesterday's poem. So...


Pejorism

Burn this after reading
      and the newsfeed you rode in on
          There is a broken line from Hearst to Huffington Post

      It's a line of black powder

The world is a keg...fuck that's boring
          unusually cliched in the most obvious of ways

How do you talk about how             the world is
                                                 moving
                                    in a always not good direction

The number of planets keeps decreasing
Anger is trending
Here is this dumb planet called Earth floating in the void
      on the edge of the largest black hole
           and all it can think about is boiling itself to death
