Cronkite’s Nightmare
Pudding Magazine #60

Earplug’s snug, lipstick’s smeared.
Cued, she cranks the smile to glisten.
Another plane down,
an IED dicing another convoy,
some suicidal zealot detonating--
each clip another twenty seconds
of head shakes and tsks.
It’s all tragedy, really--
a travesty every one--
until the next one
and the ratings come in.
