The Morning Paper - Mary Oliver

THE MORNING PAPER

Read one newspaper daily(the morning edition
   is the best
for by evening you know that you at least
   have lived through another day)
and let the disasters, the unbelievable
   yet approved decisions,
soak in.

I don’t need to name the countries,
   ours among them.

What keeps us from falling down, our faces
   to the ground; ashamed, ashamed?
