Publicity

Publicity

Don't mention his name
on the six-o-clock News,
the ten-o-clock News,
the twenty-four-hour News,
repeatedly, continually.

I don't want to know.
He's no hero.
Murder doesn't make him a martyr.
Tell me what he has done,
how many victims he has killed;
their names, not his.

If you must talk
of him,
call him what he is,
bomber,
killer,
murderer,
a deranged, evil bastard.
Don't tell me his name;
I don't want to know.
