Break in, Transmission!
Transmission is a burglar
Cracking through the windows of routine
Inputting and displaying
Broken news on untampered screens

I do not see a crack on our television
All I can hear is the voice of the broadcaster
Interrupting the normalcy that is tonight's show, thus;
"We interrupt this program to bring some breaking news"
It should be another cause for panic but
Our world has long been in shards

In my country,
There are no more breaking news, just news.
There is nothing we have not heard before.
We have learnt to expect all evils.

I am Osuluku Woyengideigha Favour, a native of the Izon tribe of
Bayelsa State, Nigeria; born on the 2nd of July, 2001. I am 300level
Student of Law in Niger Delta University.
