Call It What It Is

Heatwaves radiating across the country,

common occurrences every summer

now occurring every season.

 

Summer stretches long into Fall,

makes a cameo during Winter

And begins earlier every Spring.

 

It’s a heatwave, they say.

No, it’s global warming.

No, it’s now called climate change, haven’t you heard?

No, that’s all fake news.

It’s only a heatwave, you see.

Domestos Daze

We watched fake news race

From that perma-tanned face

Those Harpic locks pre-fabricated and bleached

He wants vaccination by Domestos

Chinese Whispers

 

We thought we’d done everything right

Y’know

Taken precautions to self-isolate

Avoiding those risky types

Who would pass it on

Making sure we didn’t

Y’know

Pass anything on ourselves

Fourteen days later

We thought

Y’know

We’re probably safe now

I’m screaming Blue Murder.

 

I’m screaming Blue Murder

at the Banker’s greed

and the people on the street

who we can’t seem to feed -

the way that we trample

on sexuali...

Red Herrings

 

From Dealey Plaza to Salisbury

and all points in between,

the Bear has been the symbol

for the west to vent its spleen.

“There’s reds under the bed”

often heard, but rarely seen,

while a pumpkin president

conducts his grizzly Halloween.

 

From Novichok to Lee Harvey

the red herrings abound,

drifting through our freedoms

but hardly ever found...

This Is The News

 

You know that there are statistics

waiting to be displayed

when a BBC reporter

stands to the left of a brick wall -

and when the report’s about finance

and they’re stood out in the rain,

you know they’re going to make a pun

about saving for a rainy day.

 

When did the news become a vehicle

for cheap shots and sound-bites?
