The Journalist

You seek the truth in an untrue world.
You blister the politicians in their lies and deceit.
You open up the pestilent sores that plague our nation.
Let the pus of greed and graft flow into the gutter.

You provide a voice for the voiceless.
You use the news to both educate and liberate.
You bring knowledge to the ignorant.
You bring hope to the hopeless.

You tremble the pillars of power
Who shield the “pig’s” brutality.

You, sir, are a journalist, the Vox Populi.
