They Might Have Ratted On Comey

 

 

Democrats had angry words for James Comey

When he re-opened his probe of Hillary.

This FBI crook

Took a second look

Only because he feared the N.Y.P.D.

 

 

 

 

Four Crooked Mice

 

 

Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch and Susan Rice

Are three of Barack Obama’s crooked mice.

Their corruption

Harmed our nation.

A stretch in the slammer for each would suffice.

 

 

 

 

A Gentle Ghost

 

Inspired by a story from Mary Wilkins Freeman

 

 

Nancy Dunn was not a happy orphan.

She was living with her foster mother.

Mrs. Keene was not a cruel woman.

But some time ago, she was warmer.

 

And now Nancy was trying her patience.

She would cry, laugh and talk into the night.

She began showing signs of defiance.

Mrs. Keene believed her mind wasn’t right.

 

Nancy never said what bothered her.

One day, a new family moved in next door.

Mrs. Flynn had just lost her young daughter.

She saw that Nancy took after her Dora.

 

The two quickly fell for one another.

They read books together and played games.

This caused the end of Nancy’s ghost mother,

Because Nancy Flynn loved her new name.
