Movin' On Up

I once wrote Op-Eds for a regional daily paper Until the new publisher thought me too liberal He preferred to publish a sensational caper Than alternative views, well-expressed, literal, God forbid the public be encouraged to think Or have the opportunity to read opposing views, Which is primarily why many local papers stink Filled, as they are, with advertisements and old news! After a stint of eight years writing to a deadline, Producing prodigious amounts of sound opinion Although I have writing outlets and I feel fine, The publisher has moved up to a lower dominion.
