Ode to the Odious O’Reilly

“More than 50 advertisers had abandoned his show, and women’s rights groups had called for him to be fired. Inside the company, women expressed outrage and questioned whether top executives were serious about maintaining a culture based on ‘trust and respect,’ as they had promised last summer when another sexual harassment scandal led to the ouster of Roger E. Ailes as chairman of Fox News.”

I’d like to say we’ll miss you, Bill
But, truth be told, we never will
The way you paw the women-folk
Suggests you’re one repulsive bloke
(Though Donald Trump may think that’s cool
His moral sense is miniscule)
Farewell, O haughty baritone
TV is now a “no-Bill zone!”
