Guiding Star O'er Washington

I pray a  bright star will shine in the air

    O'er Washington to guide some wise men there

        Bringing gifts of commonsense

            And harmony to dispense

                To a nation that is in disrepair

You can't have one without the other

The concept of gays in a marriage
One side loves and one will disparage
But rule supreme court
And one side must retort
Justice just had a miscarriage


Author's note:  Regardless of the outcome from the supreme court, I happen to favor gay marriage.  There really is no other conclusion since we are a land of equal rights.  We should do all we can to foster a society without discrimination.  The arguments against these rights reveal a lot about certain people of religious persuasion.  It would be comical if it were not so sad.

Bye Gadaffi


Gadaffi!  That hole in your temple 
will put a full stop to your trample 
of the poor Libyans.  
So, now the Syrians 
say, "Assad, step aside; that's a sample."

Kinky Sex

If having kinky sex was a crime,
A lot of your friends would be doing time.
The president and his cabinet would be too
For what they do daily to me and you.
Politicians may be worth two cents but certainly not a dime.

Main-Stream Media Have-A-Heart Trap

Each day foul critters infest our house
Though not by slipping in like a mouse
We just press a button
Or buy a subscription
To get news wrote or spoke by a louse

These creatures of the two legged kind
Try hard each day to persuade our mind
With sly information
That helps the causation
Of the falling apart of mankind

They tout the need for unearned welfare
Claim hard earned profits are so unfair
And granting amnesty
Is a good policy
Plus growing our debt is fine they swear

For those who work hard earning their way
Give what they can and put some away
Are sick of the slackers
Prodded by the backers
Whose aim is using half truths to sway

It’s hard to ignore those talking heads
But it’s not right to tear them to shreds
Yet there’s a solution
And with execution
We can spread liberty in their stead

We’ll put Obama pic’s and golf caps
Along with a taped speech that he yapped
In a human sized crate
Coz it’s time to create
A main stream media Have-A-Heart trap

Like it or not, these traps are humane
But anyways, we’ll have much to gain
So, once we have caught
All those who have brought
Disinformation causing brain drain

We’ll squeeze all of them in through a pipe
Along with politicians who hype
Irrationality
And immorality
Into a sphere of the livable type

In there they can tax to the extreme
And promote their harmful fairness schemes
But when they’re out of dough
They will lip read our NO!
Since their bubble is a sound proof dream!

I'll Tell You A Secret

At best, life is just mass confusion
Finding what's real and what's just an illusion
Speak of politics.  Do I dare?
When finding the truth is so rare.
Because politicians are just an optical illusion!

Cutting the Cheese - Something's Rotten in Wisconsin

In the land of Cheeseheads, there came a call
Saying I’m a big donor, best of them all;
Just give me the scoop,
Some real union poop;
Oh Governor, how you did fall.

Bully

There once was a bully who ruled
Thinking, man, he had everyone fooled.
	He did as he pleased
	With the power he seized
Sure that he’d never be ridiculed.

But the people who suffered his blows
Were delighted at what I suppose
	Was a foolish mistake
	For a bully to make
That reporters found ways to expose.

Now the papers all print up the news
Leaving readers to weigh things and choose
	If this bully should leave
	For most opt to believe
Such behavior he cannot excuse.

The moral, of course, hits a nerve
For most bully-types rarely observe
	That they cannot defend
	Hurting those they offend
And their punishment’s what they deserve.

Limerick: Once the Great Leader gave a brave speech

Limerick : Once the Great Leader gave a brave speech

    for Charmaine Chircop, with thanks

Once the Great Leader gave a brave speech
Excused himself for his over-reach :
« I give One to save Ten »
His Poor in need live when
Even bomb victims still feed the leech.

A silk purse made from sows ear-w

Laws are made by Congress for public
Public suffer by virtue of its click
Law maker keep loopholes
As they don’t have souls
Claim to be more than equal to check.

No lack of *Napoleon or *Snowball
Workhorses like *Boxer at their call
To use and abuse *Windmill
They choose their own deal
People left pauper after their fall.

U.S.A. Congress imposes the LAW,
"Do as I say, but not do" hence the flaw,
While we earn large salary,
You struggle in poverty,
An amendment will just stick in our craw.

** Napoleon and Snowball are the leaders in Animal Farm fighting for the power.
Boxer is a character who looks on which side of the bread is buttered.
Windmill  just a symbol of a project thro' which the politicians grind their axe.

These Colors Don't Run Limerick

                                   then came many heros
                                   lost too at ground zero

American Voters

I hear that Mit Romney is running
For Obama I hear he is gunning
Will Obama Succeed?
Will he get the votes he will need?
Or will the American voters be cunning

Will they give Mitt Romeny a Chance?
To go to the inaugural dance
Or bring back Obama 
To ride on a llama
Or will both be left in a trance

Well I hope when the votes are all in
You get the one you want to win
But bear this in mind
I’m not being unkind
It will just be the same old again



I only wrote this because we had an election and change of government and that was all that changed. Good Luck America.

Watched by Men in Black

My phone is being tapped; I’m sure of it
I called a government guy a nitwit
     Why did I post that blog?
     Am I in such a fog?
Perhaps I should have called him a half-wit

The letter to the editor was hot
Just look at how many comments it got
     Not one soul disagreed
     It started a stampede
All wanting to lash out at the big shot

Men in black are outside wearing a grin
Now I fear everyone who isn’t kin
     Strange cameras appeared
     At home – they look so weird
I believe paranoia has set in

Just eat it

When with the bayou they're messing
BP says, "Oh what a blessing,
The mix will be fine
Add vinegar from wine
To make a fine salad dressing!"

Author's note: In the end; BP will pay close to nothing, and the rest of us will be stuck with 
the cost of the environmental damage.  To the anti-government regulation libertarians: this 
lack of reason in law enables rich and powerful companies to get away with theft beyond 
imagination.  Death to the Tea Party!

Farm Boy Lost

Farm boy Judd McFadden joined the army and was sent to Afghanistan.
Three months later he was shot and killed by a sorry jihadist from Pakistan.
His buddies crossed the border,
Despite a direct order,
And chased down the lousy dirty stinking rat bastard devil worshipping Taliban.

Phillip Buster

Written by Gail DeBole

Phillip Buster could fluster a room -
Full of men whose anger ballooned
     When came his turn to speak,
     Congress snored for a week,
All dreaming he'd peter out soon.



Gail's note: Filibuster - Type of parliamentary procedure.
Right of the individual to extend debate allowing the lone
member to delay or prevent a vote on a proposal. -Wikipedia

Endless Madness

Our people respect Navy Seals
Their stealth earned applause 
and great squeals
Yet nervous most wait
As from this fateful date
There's fear of Bin Laden's 
ideals

The rabble's reaction was queer
To some of us it does appear
That no one has learned
What it means to be burned
And how from this nonsense to 
steer

He'd not have his calendar 
cleared
He died before dying his beard
His head sheared with lead
Won't taste breakfast in bed
Osama won't see his death 
cheered

The 1 Percent Solution

This country's wealth is owed to loans
A debit the public now owns 
We're told there’s no cost
But old lifestyles are lost
Over war and pork barrel bones

The public’s frail pockets they pick
Politicians and banksters trick    
And prime the nation  
With graft and inflation 
Thus making the middle class sick

Pretty faces
Boob jobs too

Porno stars,

Network news

Lying teeth.
Blinding white.

Cleavage low.

Cannot let

Murder and terror .
On she reads,

Day by day
freedoms stolen.
Freedoms lost.
Freedom now
long forgot.

Centerfold women

On CNN, 
foxy news and MSN.

Walter contrite

Buxom beauties.
Youthful cuties.
News once read
by somber heads
now is told
by sexy dames in red.
Seems my husband
to his bed
take those newscasters 
he has said
to his bed?
Yes, he said
tight hot bodies
dressed in red.

Give me news 
and give it often.
Put Ted Kopple
in his coffin.

Easy chair
a couple of beers
 all my news
I want to hear
from pretty faces
boob jobs too 
silicone lips
 and higher shoes.

Next Thing to Believe

Why do we believe the hype they spread?
Next year they say we all might be dead
This spring all will shut down
Does this bring you a frown?
Rise of gasoline with rise of bread

We seem to believe whatever they say
Why are their words now gospel today
We are losing freedoms
More or less, like kingdoms
We left one of these, for freedom to pray

Let’s see if a rumor I start unfurls
Our new cars will be run by squirrels
Fueled by nuts and acorns
But never peppercorns
Because if you do, the car just twirls

The Goddess Nut

There once was this goddess named Nut
Who was found in the tomb of King Tut
Her head was a cow
But her body was “WOW!”
And as goddesses go – she kicked butt

Her skin was the hue of the sky
Covered with stars floating by
Of her it was said
She protected the dead
She was one of the highest of high

But the statues of her were all hidden
And common folks looking – forbidden
Only priests got to peek
Incantations they’d speak
Wishing she could be bedridden

Slamming Politicians

They slam each other every day.
Tearing them apart in a sly way,
Truth I say, what a lie.
Political games cry.
Give them cement shoes, drop into bay.

They would fare better, than roll of dice.
Vote now for mystery.
Go down in history.
For they have no “tales-tails“, truths suffice.

Momma ate all the childrens' food

Momma ate all the childrens' food!
as she watched the little ones in the neighborhood,
The event created quite a ruckus
and many said she was rude,
yet, what they didn't know about Momma,
is that she was a diabetic,
and had waited too long to snack,
her world started spinning,
It almost faded to black,
She had one biscuit, but that
didn't seem to suffice,
after several, the color began
to come back in her eyes,
for a monent there, we all thought she was
a goner, we didn't care that people revolted and carried
on bad, as her children we felt realy, really sad,
We offered to pay them back from our piggy banks,
but they stoicly said, "No Thanks!"
What were a few packages of Lorna Doones?
Especially for someone who takes care of us rain, shine, even 
during monsoons,
I guess as toddlers it is never too early to learn about class,
What's a person's health worth when it is trickling like an hour glass?

Rob Ford

There was a man named Rob Ford,
He ran Etobicoke Ward.
Now that he’s mayor,
He still can’t play fair,
Waging a political war.

Our whole fortune’s fee cannot pay,
For those pills you’ve put away.
Weight loss is a scam,
Your scale’s in a jam.
Just leave your office, okay?

Buses rarely have delays,
Just give Karen Stintz her way.
Underground is bad,
Makes us riders mad.
Just leave your office today!

“No bike lanes on roads!” you vow.
Same-sex marriage you’ll disallow.
Those rules you conceive,
Make you seem naïve.
Just leave your office. Right now!
 
Your platform promises more.
“Cut taxes!” “Build homes!” you swore.
Your dreams are unreal,
Your plans not ideal.
Come now, I’ll show you the door.

Dirty Miss Politics

politics she is dirty
yet she is always flirty
they want her to be conquer 
she brought them in her yonker
making us all unworthy

Limerick: Once a tight Lobbyist in real pain

Limerick: Once a tight Lobbyist in real pain

Once a tight Lobbyist in real pain
Tried in vain to get his M.P.’s gain
So his Secretary
A laced Bloody Mary
Pumped M.P.s to P.M. to take reign.

What to Do

We had a plan, to follow true.
If we do not, what resigns the clue?
Follow the leaders now.
After they break a vow,
Even though, they know not, what to do

Lost Freedom

When did we lose our country free?
Our ancestors set rules in degree.
Now they tell us what’s good
Do what we say, understood.
Old George would cut more than a cherry tree

Limerick: Once a Cadre in a Revolution

Limerick : Once a Cadre in a Revolution

Once a Cadre in a Revolution
Took strict lessons in elocution
Saw himself on podium
Safe from opprobrium
Ai ! Missed lessons in execution !

The Pacifist


            They have kicked and kept him out of the military;

                  with the brutality of war he could not agree;

                                          ah, but you see

                                              what irony,

                now he's leading a batallion of a rebel army !

Freedoms Not Allowed

Not allowed to chew gum anymore,
What will be next, not able to open door?
This may seem frivolous.
Will be advantageous,
To profiteer, he will know the score.

We Are Had - Fire Them All

Pandemonium threatens the land . . .
we woke up and it's not Disneyland.
Congress can't make a plan,
they're just kicking the can
Down the road; we are all on quicksand.

Politician

There once was a man who could tell no lie.
Could laugh quietly and deeply cry.
Placed into politics,
Then learning, some new tricks.
Now truth forgot, so much by and by.

Chain of Command

                You, topmost brass of the military chain of command,

       though it's your warriors who blast away humans from the land,

                                                     you're liable,

                                                     answerable;

           you can never wash away the blood of guilt from your hand!

Politicians

They are running for positions in government. 
What they say is full of embellishment. 
When they are receptive, 
their tactics are deceptive. 
Thank God their terms are not permanent.

Inspired by one of Kim's recent poems.

Unprofessional Soldier?


                 If to you professionalism of a soldier

             is robotic obedience to orders for murder,

                                then count me out,

                                    I'm not a lout,

   I'm much more than that silver dog tag's serial number !

Beware Of Moving Lips

Politicians are suave but not soothing,
Saying much but very little proving.
With accent or drawl,
They spin one and all,
So beware when their lips start moving.

Character Test

              one way to really test one's genuine character

           is to give him highest rank and immense power;

                                he'll either be a beast

                               or a great saint at least,

              will build the spire of truth or the babel tower !

Slick Willie

There was a young man from Hope,
Who was asked if he ever smoked dope?
He replied that he had,
And it wasn't too bad,
But he certainly didn't inhale that rope.

The Web of Justice


              The justice system's a spider web everyone knows;

        captures just the tiniest insects: flies, moths, mosquitoes;

                                                   as a  trap

                                                   it's a crap

                   that's totally unnoticed by the passing buffaloes.

Stinking Snake

A man tossed a snake in a lake
to the bottom I thank, that It sank 
and it sit there awhile 
with a big fang smile
cause it needed a bath; for it stank!
