while the rumour is raw
deal with it delicately
figure out facts
silently sift through the suspect

Thanks Wendell. What is indeed wonderful is to see you after so long.
This is brillliant. So apt to our times of substandad “media”.
Thank you. It seems that even what we see is distorted by what we are shown, the skewed narrative, even the tone behind it. Very sad that media is irresponsible or manipulated.
Thank you for this wonderful poem. :)
Am glad you appreciate it Ranu
Thank you for creating and sharing this poem. That’s a powerful way to put it…raw rumour.
The influence of media continues to condition – and distort – thinking.
All good wishes,
Very unfortunate that globally, there is not much unbiased media.
