Nobody Home

I shook him and shook him but he wouldn’t waken He had to wake up to take his medication It isn’t for pleasure or for recreation But just for the sake of the USA nation But on second thoughts, severe constipation Or send him away on a lengthy vacation or get him to queue for that new vaccination For anything else could be mortal damnation And then he awoke with some consternation Where am I he said with much irritation I think he was having a hallucination He looked up and asked me, am I a Dalmatian? It’s my job to offer a daily summation I gave him the gen on the evacuation We’re ending our Afghanistan occupation Really, he said, has there been consultation? I told him the Afghans now face conflagration Afghan? he said, oh, a shaggy Alsatian I knew this would be an inane conversation His mind was a void, that's no exaggeration You’ve pulled out too quickly in my estimation Jill’s ironic nodding belied her frustration He didn’t respond with a quick protestation And Jill’s little grin was a saucy flirtation The topic I changed to the Covid contagion He needed to issue a communication We need to consider some rules relaxation His vacant stare offered no illumination He said that that pot plant needs fast irrigation He whipped out his weener and issued hydration He grinned as he offered a brief explanation My name is Joe Biden, for your information

Guess it’s the same all over the world, Jan. Hope to show my face around Soup more often sometime soon. Terry

Hello Terry ... I'm starting to wonder if Joe is starting to show signs of memory loss, but then again, I've never been able to understand the workings of a politician. This is a great indeed Terry - Lindsay

Just a bit of fun, Tom. If I wrote a truly honest political appraisal of the man, it would be worse, far worse. I don’t feel soup is the place for hard politics, but a little tongue-in-cheekery never hurt anyone. ;-) Terry.

It WOULD be interesting to see what goes on in Joe's private quarters!

Hi, Chetta. I can only go by what British media shows me, but he does seem a bit out of it. Personally, as I’m the other side of the Atlantic, I can take him or leave him, but hey... I had a poem to write and it was his turn to be the fall guy! ;-) Terry
