The Media - a poem by C Tyrrell

This poem was written by Christine Tyrrell the Home Manager at Murdoch House Care Home in Wokingham.

The Media

You see it on the TV you read it in the news

Another hidden camera, elderly being abuse

I do not condone this, they shouldn’t work in care

But when you read the papers it really is unfair

You never see the good; you only read the bad.

Really makes me angry, really makes me sad

The media seems to love it when things go wrong

Never report the good Homes but this makes us strong

The Homes that give dignity, choice and good quality care,

Wouldn’t sell papers, no good to go on air
