Verse and worse

So Obama's in "neutral" and the House has changed hands
The voters have spoken, amid shifting sands
Even Arnie's departed, with a brave "See you later"
And Jerry's moved in, to replace Terminator

Gov'n'r Moonbeam's alight,
says he'll make things all right;
Will he balance the budget
or continue to fudge it?

asks Willow from The Golden State
as she contemplates her fate

Hope your Golden State finds fiscal heaven, Willow. Next time I'm in the US, it would be great to explore your home state.

The problem with voting
Is the sugar coating
When they take office
They hang from the soffits

I fear the smile on the face of the Cheshire Cat
as much as I loathe the twitching whiskers of the incumbant rat
so what does that make me a republican puss?
No democrat here, more of an independent cuss!

Talking about the president,
Our first black Whitehouse resident,
Hopefully he'll be more hesitant,
To oust me to a peasant tent.


Not my best work. Perhaps I need some coffee.

I'm just an ancient has been, and politics aren't my scene,
but just as with verse,
no man can do worse
than those we have already seen!

Suldog said...

A political animal,
Hear me roar!
Oh, don't fall asleep!
Am I that much a bore?

OK, then I'll leave
I'll be back in two years
To make pompous speeches
And play on your fears

You're right about the sugar coating, TechnoBabe!

david mcmahon said...

If I concentrate, Sandi, I can see the Cheshire Cat as well ....

david mcmahon said...

Johnny, just make sure the tent has every modcon possible!

david mcmahon said...

Jinksy, no one would ever call you ancient, or a has-been - not even in verse!

david mcmahon said...

Suldog, I can hear you roar ....
