An implacable, omnivorous eye
cast over human and nature’s mayhem,
with insatiable hunger to ply
all and everything we wish to condemn.
Has power to distill and filter world
view to where perception is reality,
where reporting of truth is ever furled,
and where distortion has no boundary.
Aim and claim to be impartial belied
by enslavement to sex and corporate
affluent influence, and whose broadside
distorts facts and is never temperate.
In gravity of trivial fixate
lies the tragedy of our fourth estate.
