Today’s Media Association of Trinidad and Tobago (MATT) press conference was never done.
Its former president Suzanne Sheppard didn’t know who promised one; and its former vice-president Judy Raymond has a paper to run.
Mr Live Wire thought about a pun; but opted for a poem, just for fun:
Who is in charge of the dirty MATT?
When the public steups and the press attacks,
At the dirty laundry on media’s front door,
And Guardian’s missing ethical core,
Judy will only answer by text,
A press conference was too much to expect,
So a half dozen releases had no owner,
Suzanne and Fran can’t answer either,
Media confidence has fallen flat,
For shame is in charge of the dirty MATT.
Editor’s Note: This poem was inspired by Edwin James Milliken’s “Death and his brother sleep” otherwise known as “Who is in charge of the clattering train?”
