The Ombudsman’s Song

(With apologies to W.S. Gilbert)

When a blogger is engaged in his profession

—His profession

Of posting his opinions to the ‘net.

—To the ‘net

His capacity for error and omission

—And omission

Is greater than you ever would expect.

—Would expect.

My duty is to stamp my foot and glower

—Foot and glower

When my colleagues break the journalistic code

—istic code

Jonah, Kathryn, Rick and Jay resent my power

—sent my power

But I’ll keep them on the straight and narrow road!
