Rebekah Brooks was collared on corruption,
Arrested by the coppers from the Yard;
And Rupert Murdock took this interruption
Of Fox News’ Evil Empire rather hard.
But why should anyone have been arrested?
(Especially by detectives who molested
The public’s trust when they received his bribe.
They’re doubtless guilty, too.) It doesn’t jibe
With what we know of emperors and power
Who, usually, reward their loyal friends…
Unless they haven’t tied up their loose ends.
In such a case, they’re sent off to The Tower
To meditate with oh such fearful dread
What happens if they offer up The Head.
