Rumor

Day twenty eight of NaPoWriMo. Two more days to go. Today’s prompt is to write about a bridge. It could be a real one or a metaphorical one. I chose to write about a metaphorical one.

There was a time when all kinds of rumors,
However weird, would fly around unchecked.
With no way to check the truth in those claims,
The newspapers had to dispel those myths.

Facts and fallacies were hard to distinguish,
Even to a learned, smart, know it all.
Today it’s easier, to refute such claims,
The worldwide web is at your fingertips.

However the rumors have not died down,
Preying on the naïve, spreading faster.
There has been encouraging signs lately,
Content would be ranked as per accuracy.
