Clever dick radio journos
Push their political process.
They ask elephant trap questions,
Talk over the top of answers,
Nick Robinson crows each morning,
Bullies those he disagrees with,
Slaps down the chances of progress,
His haughtiness plain to be seen.
Not that questions are not valid,
Nor that they should never be asked,
It’s his manner that I object to,
Supercilious in extreme,
Atop his mountain built of sneers,
Irreverence assaults our ears,
He tears them down then lashes out,
Puts the boot in with acid tongue.
Each day, dismissive of alt views,
This ghoul manipulates the news,
He’s got it down to perfection,
Each piece shaped to his direction,
Smiles kindly on those that agree
With his version of history,
But try to pose alternate view
Then he will piss all over you,
His viciousness flows beyond bounds,
Listen again, BBC Sounds,
Oh for that day when we can hear,
Another viewpoint expressed clear,
Not trampled by establishment
Stooges who ape their government.
We pay to maintain status quo,
It’s how they shape the world we know.
