Babylon four, Babylon nine, Babble on PBS.
The rabble may babble without interruption,
thanks to public access.
It’s crude and it’s crass how this babbling class
grew elite in the new fourth estate.
Makes one yearn for those old hanging gardens,
where judgements were swift and reality-based.

Pundits of pith spin rumor and myth
in melodious babbling tunes.
There's the babble of stocks and the babble of jocks,
misquoted in different saloons.
From political peers to brash auctioneers,
the babble is seldom abated.

It gets abridged, bowdlerized & re-tweeted w/footnotes
but never gets fully de-babulated.
