Poem: Impressions

Posted in My Poetry with tags , , on September 12, 2010 by echostains

 It has been said that first impressions are always the truest and that you should always go by your first impression when you meet someone for the first time.  For most people, the only way they have of ‘meeting’ a celebrity will be through the media and the only clues we have on this (real) person is what what has been written about them –  what we read. 

We are able to pass judgement on these people  when we see them being interviewed, but sometimes our opinion will be clouded by what we already know (or think we know) about them from the newspapers.  The media can make or break a celebrity.  It can place you high on a pinnacle – only to knock you down when it suits.  It can make ordinary people Gods  – and then be so disappointed when they don’t live up to their hype – mete out punishment….


First impressions

are just that –


Fossil fuel


Bygone fools



Rusty tools

Which open nothing


Misty rules


Which end up as  chip paper

seemed a good idea at the time

No crime

In making a living out of lies?

Who heeds these cries?

Moving on ahead

to our latest news…..
