A Change Of Tune

 

President Trump wants solar panel installed

On our entire southern border wall.

If that were to occur

The average greener

And other tree-huggers would be appalled.

 

 

Some Wisdom From Francis Bacon

 

A woman plays three roles that she doesn’t rehearse.

At first, she’s her young husband’s carnal universe.

Next, she’s a companion

To her middle-aged man.

At last, she becomes her husband’s faithful old nurse.

 

 

The Holiday Heart

 

If your heart hammers like an unsteady ball-peen,

Maybe you should stop using anti-histamines.

If you don’t use them,

I therefore suggest then

It could be the alcohol, caffeine, or nicotine.

 

 

Target Practice

 

If we want to thwart the North Koreans

And improve our anti-missile system,

I suggest that we

Should immediately

Attempt to shot down their ICBMs.
