Above the Fold

Pay attention
to the legend
larger than life
on the front page.

It won’t last long.
Short shelf life,
quick turnover
and what not.

Roger that, sir.
We’ve got one story
to tell, and that’s
all there is, or so

I’m told. Friendly
fire. We’ll make her
a hero, unless she
is one already,

in which case
we’ll destroy her
credibility when
she appears before

congress. Madness.
She doesn’t know
what she’s talking
about. She wasn’t there.
