We Need False News Like Houston Needs Another 2 Feet of Rainn

Sadly it seems that each day there are more news that the fabric of this nation is being torn asunder adding fuel to the fires of bigotry and hate
In Houston awash in the waters of a deadly 1000 year flood, water rising with citizens in chest deep waters, chopper or boat rescue to anxiously await
A fake news tweet that a Houston mosque had closed its doors to victims because the Koran prevents helping infidels
Totally false, likely to inflame passions and when it comes to finding unity and coming together as one  makes that goal a hard sell
A photo of the Inman appeared on this inflammatory tweet that went viral in a nanosecond
Passed off as real with no fact checking to be worthy of being  reckoned
An Inman photo who has never been in Texas whose “acts” have condemned his religion
So wrong when we need unity, a false news with no truth, not even a smidgen
Freedom of speech is one of our great inalienable rights
Tragic in a 24/7 world when truth and honesty disappear from sight
