Crossing the Line

by Steven Kent

“Newsmax bans Lara Logan after Qanon-tinged on-air tirade”
The Guardian

Get Logan off the set tout de suite!
We have our standards here,
Although they’re highly incomplete
And certainly unclear.

She crossed the line, but we can’t say
Exactly when or how:
Perhaps by stating “Satan’s way”
Is immigration now,

Or claiming that young children’s blood
Is drunk by pedophiles
(All liberals), sure to cause a flood
Of lawsuits and denials.

We simply cannot have this kind
Of nut job on the air,
Yet if we find a saner mind,
There goes our market share.
