News not News

News is not news 

when it’s old.

Nor when it’s about the old.

 

Bed-blockers and pill-poppers,

costing the NHS a fortune.

Reminded of it every year.

Lest we forget.

 

When news is old

it’s history.

History like the news,

Often repeats itself.

    Subtle very subtle! Keep going john! It is not who invented the wheel? But who could repair the cart with a new wheel? Everyday on here is not an old “Greek day” but a “”eureka”” moment of total enlightenment!!!
    Not forgetting a good giggle as we look at each of our fobles, and then cast a pebble into the pond??
    Trust me ? we maybe old but I believe we are not the ‘old fools’ just yet!!!
