House of fools

Tea party's house entertainer
Is speaker complainer Boehner
Citizens are strained
Anger's hardly contained
But he's on a right wing retainer


Author's note:  Gerrymandered congressional districts have brought us house neo-cons who answer to some very foolish people.  Now, these folks will stop at nothing to make their special interests even richer while the rest of us get poorer.

    You said ;} just like kids on the play ground. Not right, not fair, but, your limerick is well said ;} Thank you as always for your kind words on my page ;} I didn't like Angel Hearts when I finished writing it. My thoughts were going to another direction. But it came out that way anyway;}

    A fine example of poetry from writers with above-average intelligence. Thank you for your recent compliment. Somebody else compared me to Beethoven as well. As for internal fermentation, that would not be a good idea. Carbon dioxide gas is a by-product of the fermentation process. One would have their guts explode if they attempted such a feat.
