As soon as they hear the news

They are there like vultures

Looking for a juicy piece of meat,

To rake up TRP numbers.

Sound bites, close-ups and the panning of crime site,

Routine work, they do every day

To feed the voyeuristic audience

Their daily dose of people gone astray.

They congregate wherever

There’s something newsworthy.

Trying to be the first on scene,

No sign of pain, revulsion or empathy.
