BURNT MIDNIGHT BBC OIL

BBC to only set agendas
That fit with the government of the day.
Forget tenets of democracy,
Just tell us what ministers have to say.
There is no such thing as journalism,
No research to look behind fake news,
Faux presenters wheeled out to parrot,
Scripted burnt midnight oil advisor views.
So rarely, if ever, pop a question,
That puts royals or generals on the spot,
Always put a shilling in the meter,
To make socialism’s collar nice and hot.
This is how it’s always going to be,
At the bourgeois preserving BBC.

Harry Rogers, in the Red Bedroom, 4th September 2020.
