Politics! Yay! A Poem By Arne Saknussen

I hope the sarcasm reads, but, just in case, I do not,repeat, do not think the New York Times is failing.
So, this should be to the tune of Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A Changin'



Come gather around watchers
Of the TV
You CNNers
And those who like the BBC
You'll know the truth if it's what I say
Or an alternate fact
If it's a different day
But heed my words or you will be sacked
For the New York Times they are a failin'
SNL, you are doomed to be cancelled
And Baldwin does a terrible me
They should hire Clint Eastwood
He is me to a tee
The most overrated actress is Meryl Streep
Her Oscar nominations are only sixteen
I could get that many even in my sleep
And grab Emmys in the morning, you know what I mean
For the New York Times they are a failin'
Hey Senators, Congressmen
Please heed my call
Just make sure your phones aren't tapped
Like mine were last fall
I don't have proof but give me two weeks
And then you'll forget about this all
At least I hope for I'm running out of tweets
Its all right, I'll just damn newspapers
For the New York Times they are a failin'
Go away fake news
I have my own
I'm spreading it faster than Sweden has views
My inauguration was crowded, but you know that
The photos all lie
The white sheets blended in too well
But like Frederick Douglass said
Let's give 'em hell
For the New York Times they are a failin'
