“Humour Don’t Sell Papers” by Don Matthews.

I’ve just read today’s paper

It’s full of doom and gloom

Murders, killing, destruction, death

Children being groomed

Headlines blare out constantly


There’s so much negativity

(The paper I have closed)

Why can’t I read, enjoy myself

With lots of humour, rife?

Instead of being subjected to

This gutter side of life?

Humour don’t sell papers….

    The Far Side and Dilbert were the only reasons I read the paper…

    That and the crossword puzzle.
