“Filthy British tabloid with a greed-stoked phone hack”

The other day Masefield’s Cargoes inspired a line, so I had to try to make at least a stanza on that for the MWC spring lunch today. It’s still a work in progress; missing sex and purience and other things; and it has repetitve “greed” – but so has British tabloid journalism, so maybe I should pretend that’s deliberate.

Any suggestions for a good title?

Verse so far:

Filthy British tabloid with a greed-stoked phone hack,
funding politicians and burying their sleaze.
With a headline of celebrity,
xenophobes, fear-mongering;
and a byline of bigotry, new-speak and rampant greed.
