You Can’t Lose If You Don’t Play

 

When I see ads for the lottery on TV,

I believe it’s time for a little honesty.

These ads should say

To those that may play:

Our exciting lottery needs your money.

 

 

 

Venues For Millionaires

 

I’ve joined the ranks of the gainsayers

That abhor stadiums for pro football players.

One reason I’m pissed

Can be stated like this:

These places are mainly funded by taxpayers.

 

 

 

Harvey Weinstein

 

Yes, he abused many women sexually,

But what’s the big deal re this guy, Harvey?

We know that Bill Clinton

Abused a number of women,

And he also got away with perjury.

 

 

 

A Contradiction In Terms

 

All forms of insurance are based on risk,

And preexisting conditions gainsay this.

That is to say,

When they’re in play,

You can’t insure against what already exists.

 

 

Every Witch Way But Loose

 

Hillary Clinton is a necromancer.

She said she talked with Franklin’s Eleanor.

Since that’s a fact,

We must face this fact:

Vince Foster may have talked about his murder.
