Newspaper Life (#1553)

I wonder if life is just sheets of newspaper print,
Some lives are headlines and others a misprint,
Are we just stories and frontpage photos?
Little quotes beside stock trades and corporate logos?
Perhaps we’re the want ads or even the comic strips,
Some might even be the advice columns giving tips,
Sad but true some end up as part of the obituary,
Like any print run to print run our content may vary,
We’ve been known to shield others from the rain,
Or act as a blanket for the homeless on a bench or train,
We’re pressed and circulate through the world at large,
Of course, not without a nominal surcharge,
Could it be possible that we’re only newspaper sheets?
Adorning newsstands or tumbling down empty streets?

Any Thoughts?
