Newsmaker - Poem by Ima Ryma
Killer wackos know they will be
Made famous in the air and press.
Mainstream media have a spree
Covering a mass murder mess.
The victims get reported too,
But the killer takes center stage.
The mug shot, always a must do,
Showing the face of burning rage.
If it bleeds, it leads - that's a fact
That any killer wacko knows.
All it takes is a killing act,
That's prime - off all media go.
Killer wackos - they want the fame.
They want the world to know their name.
