Rookie - 60 Points (Egremont)

Jobsworth Journalists - Poem by Tom Higgins

They write the words
to say we must
abide with all that is unjust.
They write the words
to say we all
must obey
or all will fall.
They write lies
to perpetuate
ignorance, greed,
and eternal hate.
They used to write,
in times gone by,
some truths you knew,
were not a lie,
and then came a change
I have thought long,
that this was strange
and very wrong,
it coincides with those times
of the Thatcher
- Reagan crimes
against all decency and humanity,
which begat
our shared reality.
