Have I got old news for you

Does old news simply go away
because it's not front page today?

Has everyone with Ebola recovered
or are there thousands more cases
 to be discovered?
Is Kathmandu recovering with slow trepidation
or are aftershocks still traumatising the nation?
Are migrants homeward bound on sturdy ships
or are they still making their one way death trips?

Is it the media who are obsessed with new
or is it that we don't want to be retold
the old?
Who knows?
