Would They Be Allowed To Enter?

 

 

The newly discovered planets could cause fretting,

If they have beings who travel to the Earth’s setting.

I think Trump would say,

Should that occur someday:

“No space aliens allowed without extreme vetting.”

 

 

 

Not A Hard Choice

 

 

A Republican congressman made me want to swear

And pull my hair, when he said something really unfair.

Yes, choices must be made

Because bills must be paid,

But I won’t give up my iPhone to pay for my health care.

 

 

 

 

A New Use For The TV

 

 

We will likely suffer from increased disquietude

Now that WikiLeaks says we may been seen in the nude.

They say that the NSA,

On any given day,

May give us a new definition to the boob tube.

 

 

 

 

Some Misguided Women

 

 

 

There’s something about which I have no doubt.

If unhappy Western women want to shout,

Let them back those women

Who live under Islam.

That would give them something to protest about.
