How we should ‘watch the watchers’

My poem on Leveson and how the status quo should change.


Watch the watchers

Who watches the watchers who watch?

They watch a bit too much with their all seeing eyes, 

nothing off limits,

nothing sacred in their eyes,

beyond the pale, all to boost sales.

Who should guard the guardians,

What is it they guard,

public interest,

self interest?

All the power to speak truth to power yet no responsibility,

A power not to be misused, abused,

So who should watch the watchers who watch,

It should be up to those who are watched.
