Celebrity Hack


Vitriolic rifts and schisms
Dress them up as witticisms
Underhanded criticisms
Paraded as a pretticism.

"Well, I know that's not a REAL word
Daahling, but this is showbiz! "

Feeding on the gossip hunger,
Revelling as rumour-monger
Make the story linger longer
Rub your hands and count the Wonga

" Money is SUCH a dirty word
Daahling, but this is showbiz! "

Spread the word on Who is Trending
Fragile egos all need mending
Vacuous opinions vending
Soundbites from your contacts sending

'Celebrity Hack is a HATEFUL term
Daahling! But, this IS showbiz! '

    Excellent poem- first stanza especially! Humour used as a weapon is the nastiest kind, because the victim just has to grin and bear it. It must be difficult, though, to have a job where your ethics are continually tested. (Report) Reply

    Ha, I often wonder what it would be like to inhabit 'that' world. But I am all too happy to be on the outside of that. You've captured it well, in more than one aspect. (Report) Reply

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
