(Sung to the tune of Jacob ’s Ladder)
We are journos, getting better,
As the bottom line grows badder;
Joining readers in online chatter
We need Journalism That Matters;
Conversations, not a lecture,
Telling stories, not conjecture;
We have something great to give,
To help our communities to live!
Master narrative, we’re for thee;
Yes, the public will join the party.
We need hope, and joy and fun,
‘Cuz our work is never done;
Now we’re packing, going home,
Taking with us, notes in a tome,
Will we change the world we live in?
That’s the gift that we’ve been giv’n.
