"Tis Smoke, My Bloke"

As the mind of humanity’s flesh
Simply wants all of the world’s cash
As bills smell in congress they pass
Laws  resembling methane gas
Poof, aloof, savings gone in a flash
Of cash stash, my soul is free at last


Our retirement savings of cash stashes 
Like bad memories as congress passes 
Their bills smelling like methane gases
Like moles complain of smelling mo__ lasses
As the politics of fresh air clashes
`Tis smoke, my bloke; use miracle glasses

    Loved this poem again on second reading. It speaks of common sense reasoning. And it was difficult for me to write on the theme of "Pardon my French" without using profanity in a poem. I tried to get another assigned theme to no avail. Love you, Carolyn

    The legislation that's being profered today does smell "like methane gases," John. We need miracle glasses to see through the smoke of their deception. You always seem to write what's in my heart. Awesome, dear friend. Love, Carolyn

    "I roll up the tight, spineless bloke....light him up, and out blows the smoke!" I really like this poem John. Aye! Will the stench of the bills ever pass? Had a nice chuckle at this. Chris.
