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

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
