Let's murder all journalists, I say

Today is a good day to to murder a journalist
The Mylapore-man made his palm into a fist
Nicely mixing molzha puddi chutney with his pappodums
Shoot the bugger (any chap) six times in the bums

One such chap found shot, slaughtered and sank
Floating past the ITO near the Yamuna bank
42 year-old, did the crime-beat without any fear
Fourth accredited scribe murdered this year

A few of the usual accomplices arrested
Sms, eMails and mobile bills scrutinised
Impunity is not under control - quite the contrary
Says my informer in Janpath's Sonarupa Bar

According to a recent survey by Media-Aid
This doesn’t include cases of the last decade
70% of murders haven’t been cleared up, only
But behenchod neither is the water supply in our colony

Crime pays when it is against the press
Drug dealers, mafia dons, authorities who repress
Take turns to issue a supari
Police can’t arrest them, you see

So what, the Mylapore-Man brays
Let's murder all journalists, I say
For spreading gloom and doom
In every single living room

Their writing, so dangerous to the nation
Daily bombardment of disinformation
Let's put a magnifying glass on words
Banish all of it as illegal turd

Lets murder all journalists, I say?
For poisoning the public, aam janta
Says the Mylapore-Man watering his tulsi plant
That the holy cows tried to chew this morning
