Tommy Burkett
by DCDave

His death is "highly sensitive,"
The British reporter said,
And, indeed, the Washington Post's readers
Wouldn't know that he was dead.

Killed in Northern Virginia,
Right in the Post's domain,
They know, but they've never reported
The news that he was slain.

Taking their orders from murderers
While showing a polished face,
They're not liberty's guardians,
They're a national disgrace.

David Martin
