The Lyrics

Did his editors scar Jayson Blair,
Plagiarist of the New York Times?
Of his false stories, they were aware,
But still they gave him big headlines.

A bright future loomed when he was hired,
But it was a misconception.
And so the Times reluctantly fired
Their weapon of mass deception.

Was he a victim or was he a token?
Were they sage at the New York Times?
How many rules has Jayson broken
Misreporting the Sniper crimes?

There is a plan to restore order,
A diligent search has begun.
For a most trustworthy reporter,
They want Gepetto's wooden son.

Yes, his editors scarred Jayson Blair,
Firing him without saying thanks.
But with his book deal, Jayson won't care,
He'll laugh all the way to his banks.

John J - I was surprised this had so few votes and no comments. It's good. To me the pace was off just enough that I called it "4-5-5". But it's still a very good read.
