Bonus Poem of the Week: A Villanelle on 21st Century Journalism

A Villanelle on 21st Century Journalism
September 29, 2016

Grow up and do your job, you pompous ass!
You’re supposed to be objective, you know.
Cut the crap for once and show us some class.

Just what do you get from being so crass,
Shooting off your mouth and acting macho?
Grow up and do your job, you pompous ass!

We came to read the news, not cope with sass
From some snide narcissist with steam to blow.
Cut the crap for once and show us some class.

Spare us your pretention and let it pass.
Condescension’s never in style, you know.
Grow up and do your job, you pompous ass!

Quit shoving your agenda up my ass
And knock off the personal attacks, schmoe.
Cut the crap for once and show us some class.

Professionalism’s run out of gas
When it comes to keeping folks in the know.
Grow up and do your job, you pompous ass!
Cut the crap for once and show us some class.
