A Very Lousy Dragon Poem - unlike you-know-who's

There once was a dragon of note
who found out he couldn't go vote
so he started to lobby
which became his new hobby
and a briefcase became his new tote.

At the statehouse he began a career
of burning the governor’s ear.
He said “it ain't fair
that you really don’t care!”
(and sometimes) “Hand me a beer!”

Soon the nobodies all got the right
to vote and make known their plight.
So they favored the dragon
and overloaded his wagon—
They called him “hero” and “knight.”

Dragon got fat as a cat
which had eaten too many a rat.
He lost all his fire
and any desire
to throw through those rings his fine hat.

The lowlies then had no more hero
and quickly lost all of their cheero.
If you think that is bad,
have you ever been had—
by a pundit, politician or zero?

There once was a dragon of note
(it's redundant, but easy, by rote)
who became one of them
(and not just on a whim).
That dragon became an old goat.

There should be a moral right here
one that you’d absorb with great cheer
but, alas it would seem
(unless they work for YOUR team)
lobbyists are really quite drear.

Coin With the Same Face on Both Sides


                                Once again the coin has been tossed
                                to choose between just dirt and dross
                                Insults from ridge to ridge
                                on how to build a bridge
                                in town without river to cross

Pocket Pool?

A political pundit with power
stuffed dollars in his purse by the hour.
When called to court,
he said “Why not, sport?”
My daughter’s in real need of a dower.

And, while running a nasty ad game
He cried out “Why I’m not to blame!”
He did it too,
So *crew to you!
And he rose up on a tide of acclaim?

The Last Laugh?

Democracy now that is a laugh
When the voting is all stacked with graft
And I will give you a plug
If you punch out that lug
If you believe me you’re really daft!

You say you’re poor and you’re not real able
To put food and some bucks on the table
Just right say the rich
Starve and don’t *itch
Or drop by and muck out my stable!

Grad’s from Vassar and Yale all abhor
Those in Appalachia with dirt floors
But they own the coal mines
And their wealth is refined
They won’t mess up their minds keeping score.

You can’t get a real education
In this righteous American nation
Well go read a book
Or go shoot a crook
Rise to your appropriate station!

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."

Bill (in) Hillary? A turgid question.
Monica eased prostatic congestion.
His Altoids improved the taste,
while her dress absorbed the waste.
Her mother kept the prized possession!

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
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!

Answer Please

The economy's decidedly poor,
But the President's spender ain't sore,
He keeps spending our money, 
And laughs like it's funny,
What happens when there ain't no more?

Strange Foods

Our Congress has been overlooking

The wisdom of old Granny Lu-Ching

       She was full blooded Chinese

       And said, "Beware strange foods please

 Of crooks that won't eat their own crooking!"

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!

The Rich Get Richer

So many crooks like old Madoff
From trusting folks they get paid off
The economy fell 
Yet their pockets still swell
and as for me, I am laid off

Neither a follower or leader be,
middle of the flock looks alright to me.
Leaders draw noses in ass,
followers spread bull and gas.
Both make money on their endorsed crime sprees!

A Gallon

“Gas: below three bucks a gallon!”
The media’s gleefully howlin’
-	But let’s not forget
-	They’re screwin’ us yet
If it’s over a buck, they’re a felon!

I got your taxes

Our congress just loves to lament,
about waste when taxes are spent,
but say it ain't healthy 
to tax raise the wealthy
so they tax those that can't pay rent.
Roads and the schools need maintaining,
from taxes I'm not abstaining,
while the poor live on beans
its the ones with the means
that are doing the complaining.

I choose a career that won't pass,
just anywhere near upper class,
but I'll make my dollar 
with sweaty blue collar
The wealthy can all kiss my ass.

Stereotyping a poem

The Al-Qaeda is a blatant lie,
Are all Muslims terrorists and spies?
Eyes shift from the black man,
Now fixed on them Afghans,
But in war harmless people die.

He'd Rather Be Golfin'

He's been swingin' clubs since trouble began.

   The Great Leader proclaims he hath no plan!

      Hey man!  There is a crisis,

         With some bandits called Isis!

            Cease yer 'putt'erin' and 'strategize', man!

A True Leader's Thoughts

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

These Colors Don't Run Limerick

<                                 once were twin towers on horizon
                                   bombarded by Al Qaeda what sin
                                   then came many heros
                                   lost too at ground zero
                                   America's flag still flew in wind

On 911 R.I.P. You Are Not Forgotten

Sheep Shepherds (We ain't much smarter)

You fixin' to get CLIPPED (clueless beast!)
Or dismembered for a mutton feast
Make a break from your breeders
Don't follow lyin' leaders!
Or you gonna' get FLEECED (at the least!)

We The Sheeple

Oh, this long and dreary road
Morons lead, with us in tow
Reapers of Counsel
Shearing the sheeple

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.

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.

Doing Nothing

While political folks dilly dally
Job growth winds down a deep valley
Employers won't hire
Old folks can't retire
The poor house could be our finale

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.

Curse of the Tape

They go on the attack and inveigh.
Hear the gasp and the utter dismay!
we try hard not to laugh
when they commit each gaffe
No rewind. no delete. no delay.

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.

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.
