When the Newsman Becomes News

Lamenting yet another fallen hero

Another anchor bites the dust
and all because of carnal lust.
A newsman became news himself
as we turned on Today.

First Charlie and now Matt are gone
because the things they did were wrong.
Succumbing to an untamed beast,
they reaped what they had sown.

More stars are likely yet to fall
as those harassed at last tell all.
The iceberg’s tip is all we’ve seen.
I wonder who’ll be next.

But lest we simply shake our heads,
we’d best look deep within instead.
When we admit our weaknesses,
we can (through faith) be strong.
