Yellowed Pages

All articles featured in The Beet are creative, satirical and/or entirely fictional pieces. They are fully intended as such and should not be taken seriously as news.

 In a box under the bed 

Laid a copy in print, sprinkled with cardinal red

Bylines and mastheads from a different era

Changes made for worse or better

The pages, yellowed with age 

Mark the start of when the virus put us all in a cage

Today you hold in your hands a copy fresh and new

The names in print have changed, bar a few

But the spirit remains the same 

Kept alive by those who have survived

And fresh faces excited to thrive

Perhaps you could be next
