A DECLARATION of DEDICATION

to CLARIFICATION

OF INFORMATION DISPENSATION

I'd like to find an explanation,

Why despite their education,

Presenters cause me aggravation,

Through constant mispronunciation.

It makes me weep with consternation,

To hear such language degradation.

Though theirs is an exalted station,

Their diction gives no indication,

That they've had sufficient preparation,

For their demanding occupation.

They'd stand higher in my estimation,

If they took more care with punctuation.

It would improve their presentation,

And help to calm my frustration,

Perhaps might win my approbation.

I think they have an obligation,

To study words, and their derivation.

You must clearly see the implication,

Their aim is just remuneration.

They haven't earned my admiration.

I hope they heed my exhortation,

And rectify the situation,

Then when they read out information,

It will be received with gratification,

Not just by me, but all the nation
