Listen to poem:
Floating o'er smooth seas of unhampered trust,
The datelines became all important, a must,
The professional ethic is passed as nuisance,
In the 90’s no one cared to check, or ever since.
Broadcast good, bad or ugly, never mind,
Terrible, fake, unchecked, whatever kind,
Announce the authenticity by being embedded,
The info got censored, tailored, always vetted.
Newsless stories, political agenda got divulged,
Stakeholders chipped-in, CEO’s pockets bulged,
Let’s not distract the narrative, bore and unreal,
Let’s not overreact, heads down, as we kneel.
They cannot depress but announce betoken word,
Never mind, the nonsense that borders with absurd,
Surprise, their days aren’t over for we’re soft,
As they continue their “float-over-seas” waft.
