Death In Cumbria.

In Cumbria there is death,
Tradgedy on the windís breath,
But bothering not with words of silk,
The media all the horror milk,

But though media executives,
May use right adjectives,
They know in pounds how many millions,
To their company each death is worth,

For there of compassion is a dearth,
When thinking of accumulations,
As perceptive people all can see.
This is to the media not a tragedy,

This is for them a cash windfall.
Which means at Christmas time,
Bonuses will for journalists be fine,
And capitalism will them again enthral.

Then at bonus time,
When they benefactors must enshrine,
Derrick Bird executives will thank,
For so much extra in the bank.
