I have written, and write, verses on different subjects,including politics. Some are satiric and some, I hope, amusing. Feel free to comment.

Speaking In Tongues

All those who in the U.S. would reside
to learn the language they must decide.
They have to be able to use the lingo
and try to sound like a native Gringo.

To avoid the risk of being perplexed
they must learn to read a simple text.
The test will not be too demanding
just enough to avoid misunderstanding.

Love's Labour Lost

To head the World Bank Bush named his crony Wolfowitz
who promised he would wage a blitz
against corruption and anything resembling sleaze
and on any wrong doers put the squeeze.

He blustered onto the World Bank podium
dismissive of the audience’s odium.
Though his appointment was greeted with widespread gloom
he swore he would sweep with a strong new broom.

Going Round in Circles

If you ever try to understand a mathematician’s mind
you may well be astonished at what you might find.
They are always looking for things invisible
and trying to split what is indivisible.

A Mathematician Believes in Cod

A mathematician of wide renown
tossed aside his cap and gown
and turned his attention to studying bacalao,
which I am told is a most delectable chow.
