Friday Fun 9: Humbert Wolfe’s The British Journalist – #Hackgate The Poem

by quaesitor

In the light of recent events, it seems only appropriate to bring this back to the forefront of public attention. You’ve seen the trailer for Hackgate The Movie – now read Hackgate The Poem. Written by Humbert Wolfe in the 1920s, it shows that little has changed over the last century or so…

The British Journalist

Humbert Wolfe (1885-1940)

You cannot hope
to bribe or twist,
thank God! the
British journalist.

But seeing what
the man will do
unbribed, there’s
no occasion to.

(From The Funny Side, p115)

So that’s alright then…
