Names in the News | A Poem by Stan Morrison

Diane Sawyer ought to be a lawyer
carefully avoiding reading any news
unflattering to her sponsors’ views
she always looks so harried
wonder if Diane is married

Barbara Walters’ voice falters
she never wears any halters
Barbie can drag out over an hour show
a five minute yarn we don’t care to know
favoring the gossip over the serious
making the trivial sound mysterious

Dan Rather doesn’t seem to matter
60 Minutes doesn’t have much in it
weather reporters gab for a long time
about some trivial change in the clime

This sort of banality is so trashy
Ron Burgundy keeps me sassy
