He Should Have Resigned

 

 

When AG Lynch spoke with Hillary’s hubby,

That “was the capper for me,” said James Comey.

He thought she was too conflicted,

So that’s why he did what he did.

By acting in her stead, he acted too freely.

 

 

 

 

Political Hardball

 

 

Many sports viewers, at the end of the day,

Just wanna pop a cold one and watch teams play.

Now ESPN

Is in a tailspin,

Because politics are getting in the way.

 

 

 

 

The Swamp Suburb

 

 

Virginia’s affluent Fairfax County

Is one of the richest in the country.

Here’s where government drones

Have their suburban homes.

Of course, they voted big time for Hillary.

 

 

 

 

The ACLU’s New Purview

 

 

Defending free speech is a true virtue,

And that’s what the ACLU used to do.

By now remember this

If you are a rightist,

This biased crew wants little to do with you.

 

 

 

 

An Over-Used Word

 

 

The word “iconic” has been pulled up from the past.

It seems to designate coolness, elan and class.

Unlike the media herd,

I’m tired of the damn word.

But we certainly don’t need more iconoclasts.

 

 

 

 

Entropy Is The Enemy

 

 

The universe is governed by entropy.

All matter goes from hot to cold steadily.

All things fall apart,

So we’ll play our part,

By growing old and dying eventually.
