Unofficial Expert

by sunnilicious


My gut tells me to watch this show
on the local public broadcasting station;
Good people probably always stay informed.
Well, all personalities of people watch television.

On an old chair, my behind sits comfortably
I am an unofficial expert on COVID
Worry later! Listen intently... Absorb the details!
Tell that doctor to shut his trap already!

I am an unofficial expert on COVID
My mind only holds facts! Not opinions!
I spent an hour on news from last November
And my pandemic fears are lost in a matrix!

My God, Frontline does this periodically.
On I rant, in the living room, channel surfing...
Get me 24/7 updates not syndicated repeats.
Why did this ordeal really get started?

in a room of climate change activists
BY ISABELLA BORGESON

my family drowns again
on a microphone for strangers
gnarled white hands grab everywhere
we�?�¢??ll put you before the money pitch

on a microphone for strangers
I become expert of a tongue I do not speak
we�?�¢??ll put you before the money pitch
tell them how your mom almost died

I become expert of a tongue I do not speak
my gnarled white hands grab everywhere
I tell them how my mom almost died
& my family drowns again.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
