Numbers & Stories

“She’s the number?  Citizen in country X

Appearing on the news as a story in a terror attack

Later on becoming the survivor 

Finally to appear again on news as a STORY,

the survivor who had survived the dangers of terrorism,

but another FIGURE who oddly died in a car accident in a peaceful country!”

For your country you are merely a number

They want to brag about

Alongside ‘MEGA NATIONS’

With 1.5 Billion citizens

Just to say hey ‘Look, we too, we’re billions!’

For a news man or woman

You’re just another story

Increasing their viewers


Keeping them under the spot!
