The Misheard News (2004)

This just in

Local poetry producers
Are finding it hard to compete
With subsidized poetry
From industrialized nations

A spokesman said
These subsidies undermine the competitiveness
Of locally produced poetry
It is hard to see how we can sustain
A modern poetry industry in the long term
When the market is flooded with cheap poetry products
From overseas

(The spokesman
And some poets no doubt
Called for a ban on imports of
Frozen chicken)
