Farewell, Valedictorian

 

High schools are waiving the valedictorian.

There’re hoping to reduce unhealthy competition.

Thus, I would like to say,

Since it’s that way today

Let’s cancel playoff games at the end of the season.

 

 

 

Two Losers

 

Jeff Sessions should have remained in the Senate,

Because as AG, he is clearly incompetent.

And what’s more

One Roy Moore

Is a piss-poor potential Senate replacement.

 

 

 

A Brief Stop On The Way Down

 

Under the presidency of Bill Clinton,

Our country began its rapid declension.

But now things have changed,

And despite the deranged,

We’re having a short-term remission.

 

 

 

Citing Erich Fromm

 

A statement by Erich Fromm causes one to think

Now that the world is clearly on a nuclear brink.

With Kim Jong Un in mind,

I cite Mr. Fromm at this time:

“The lust for power is rooted in weakness, not strength.”
