FAKE NEWS POEM By Fatai Ismaila omobolaji

Written by Editor

Have you seen anything that spread faster more than a virus?

Something that will travel without an aircraft and roam round Asia

To the beautiful cities around Europe in a whiff

And surge the high borders of North and South America in one click

And visit the poor Africa to feast

Just in a solo day it will paddle round Antarctica and Australia brine full of people

Have I not warned you it’s spread more than infections!

It eats man’s brain with turmoil of high magnitude

It has no scientific drugs because you are the cure yourself

What I warn you about is Fake News

I tell you nobody could recollect when it was born

But it reincarnate during the contemporary epoch

It was created by people for you and i

It is the evidence of everything awful about information

Fake News not solely mislead

But also ravage credibility

I tell you consider the source and you control the spread

I inform you read beyond and you attack the spread with fresh knowledge

I advise you check the credibility of the author and examine cause for reasons

I warn you check for supporting source and you cure yourself from FAKE NEW
