November Poem-a-Day: Day 28

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) News,” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Possible titles include: “Good News,” “Bad News,” “Daily News,” and “Old News.”

Bad news travels fast

What is it about people
Who share the destruction
Of lives and families
As if they’re passing along
A glass of champagne
And an exquisite truffle or two?
