Twas a time
the newspaper was essential to the day;
Until it was devoured everything else could stay.
Every character printed treated as official proclamation
The editorials were matters of great contemplation.
What comes in now is just ‘the daily paper’
Even its relevance, is starting to taper!
Sports and sales are usually the only perused subject
The rest sadly is viewed under the lens of fact check!!!
