Lines on the Demise of News of the World

So Farewell then News of the World,
Or ‘Screws of the World’ as the ‘Eye’ had it.
Your wilful confusing of public interest
with what would interest the prurient
inevitably meant you screwed the public.
You claimed you did a useful public service
as you daily bribed the cops and set new standards in hypocrisy
But your misdeeds were clearly exposed
in the dead face of the power liar.
So many enemies, but I don’t question
Why you never get sacked
But why you never get shot?
