Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

When you pause and reflect on political caucus
You wonder why its members are sometimes so raucous
Despite the business of budgets and bills
Mud-slinging gives them the greatest of thrills

It's what they go into politics for isn't it?

Hmmmm...
Perhaps if they sold tickets at the door of the House and Senate,(and made them all REALLY do some mud wrestling)...we could pay off the National Debt! LOL

Ideology always trumps consensus it seems. When battle lines are drawn all over the place, everyone always runs to their side and hides.

Oh, it does indeed! I rather like The Muse's idea!

Isee you have been following the our elections and the greeting of the new President's proposal for fixing the economy!

Numbers are boring, tedious, dull
But "who slept with whom"
Leaves numerical days remarably full
With rumors and prophesies of politicians' doom.

Reminds me of the schoolyard, some never grow up, they just migrate to the next best thing - parliament, Margaret

This could well apply to the American political scene too.

I believe your poem to be undeniably true,
Put I couldn't have penned it as well as you!

French politics aren't immune to this I'm afraid...

My mind flashed for an ever so brief moment on a mud ring and swimsuits, I gotta go wash my brain.

Truer words haven't been spoken
Just as true as promises broken
Slinging mud makes a strange sound
Throwing dirt you only lose ground

Leesa said...

Oh, and we love our mud-slinging.

Mojo said...

Ah...

I can't think of a single thing to add to this one.

Bang on mate!
