A Humble Plea


We’re losing the war against diabetes

And the terrible obesity disease.

So, Mr. Chemist,

I humbly ask this:

Find a safe and tasty sugar substitute, please.




Indoctrination Isn’t Education


Spooked by rising hostility in Trump country,

Elite schools are wooing rural kids eagerly.

But come commencement time

Many students will soon find

That they now possess nearly worthless degrees.




Why Comey’s Pals Should Be Fired


Peter Strzok, Andrew Weissman and Jeannie Rhee

Are the three leading members of Mueller’s team.

Hillary is their gal

And Comey is their pal,

So, with Mueller, they are as biased as can be.




Sheep in Wolves’ Clothing


I wonder if Woodward and Bernstein are squeamish,

Or maybe they are even suffering anguish.

Robert Mueller’s corrupt team

Is a crack reporter’s dream.

Yet, these two liberals are acting sheepish.




Seventeen Mil From The Public Till


Let’s hear more about the seventeen million

Paid to Congressional harassment victims.

The public needs to know

The names of these scoundrels,

So we can vote them out in the next election.
