Last night when I turn on the TV
Watch the news the world to see.
I had enough of the BBC
When in detail was the Ohio Three
After ten years of captivity
One lady was returning home free
Not a thought was given to her dignity
As the press surrounded her aunties property
A news chopper swooped in close to see
Add to the drama for you and me
Be the first to film her on TV
She’s not a person, just a commodity!
It was at this point it was enough for me
Be it her joy or her misery
Just bizarre entertainment shamefully
In this rude exposure, I disagree.
How many others are like me?
Angered by the presses duplicity
Pretending to care, whist filming with glee
Sick to the stomach I turned off the TV.
How many of you watched happily?
This circus event uncaringly?
Who sat and gawped into the fish bowl pryingly?
This is not news it is an obscenity!
It’s their ordeal, their story
It is not our right, our monopoly
It’s their life exclusively
Until they wish to speak, LET THEM BE!
