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

The Chairman Doth Protest Too Much

Greenspann arises from the Ashes

We thought that he had at last gone away
and would not again be jumping into the fray.
But Alan Greenspan was called to appear before an Inquiry Commission
to answer questions about his role in the financial demolition.

It soon became clear he was there his critics to roast
as he sat before the panel looking like Jacob Marley’s Ghost
While he was Fed Chairman mistakes were made he admitted
but none, apparently, by him had been committed.

Tiger -- The Never Ending Story

As Tiger’s head mistress is ready to shoot him down in flames
our attention is being distracted by a guy called Jesse James.
Does anyone really believe it when they try to feed us the fiction
that promiscuity has now become sex addiction?

That lying and cheating is a medical condition
to be treated by a specialized physician?
That spending a very short time in what they call rehabilitation
will mean all will be forgiven and be their salvation?
