Julian, Julian

This morning The Times columnist Matthew Parris described the Julian Assange story as God’s gift to journalists in the summer silly season.  And the Wikileak founder’s ‘sojourn’ in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London is a tremendously silly situation that — as they say in the business — you couldn’t make up.  Will our intrepid ‘framed’ crusader make a cunning escape to the land of his benefactors?  And once there will he wiki-leak all their secrets about Human Rights abuses?  Or will he finally board that Scandinvian Airlines plane and face down his accusers?  We wait with bated breath…at least until the start of the Paralympics…… 🙂


Julian, Julian

Wherefore art thou going


They seek you here

They seek you there

In Swedish Courts

In The CIA’s ‘Lair’

Once upon a time

You were everywhere

Wiki-leaking away

Without a care

Now you’re quite demure

Just a ghost of a smile

On a London balcony

Risen above the crazed cacophony

An amusing turn

Before the paralymics

A stand-off to delight the press

Odds on a bizarre exit to impress

Oh Julian, Julian

Come down from on high

Wikileak your plans, as in olden times

Face your accusers– defend those ‘crimes’


About silent seranader

I'm a London-based writer and journalist, pretty much interested in most things. I love to write fiction -- and have written several novels as well as a bunch of short stories and poems, which can be viewed at Karen on Jottify.com http://jottify.com/writer/karenlesleytaylor/. I've started up a new food blog, which reviews places to eat, quite often with a literary or arts connection. I'm enjoying writing it. A bit like eating a good meal, it isn't exactly hard work. It's currently about places in London... but, I think, that could well change.
