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

Some Assets are Best Left Hidden Assets

So Anthony could not hang on
and very soon he will be gone.
Can anyone account for the actions of Mr. Weiner,
that would explain his bizarre demeanor?.

What can have happened to his brain
that made him flush everything down the drain?
Why did he, judged by colleagues as being among the bright,
put on his future so damaging a blight?

Was it attention that he sought?
Did he unconsciously want to he caught?
Was he suffering from depression?
Was it perhaps a Freudian repression?

A pity when the good doctor lectured about behavioral disorders
no-one had yet invented recorders.
Did he really claim that what every woman, including Venus,
yearned for most of all was to have a penis.

Penis envy was the term he used
and it has left politicians and sportsmen confused.
They believe it meant women wanted theirs to be shown
instead of longing to have one of their own.

This has led to a spate of tweeted pictures
that brought upon the senders outraged strictures.
It’s not easy to understand how anyone a thrill could get
by exposing their intimate details on the net.

The moral is one that’s very clear.
One should not show the whole world all one’s gear
So let any man who would like to be thought of as a masher
be careful not to become a cyberflasher.

Many skeptics there are who think
Freud was the one who needed a shrink.

Twitter, Twitter on the Wall, Who is the Sexiest of them All?

What is it with men in positions of power
who seem to inhabit an ivory tower?
They believe they are kings of their castles
and think of women as their vassals..

Tiger and Dominique are names that spring to mind
and there are many others of a similar kind.
Arnold of course we should not forget
who, just like the others, his behaviour must now regret.

There’s Governor Mark Sanford who mountains could shift
when he flew off to Argentina to give his soul mate a gift.
When to his wife he became a traitor
he moved the Appalachians south of the Equator.

Then they become indignant and cranky
when someone discovers their sexy hanky panky.
The latest would-be Lothario to be found out
is now seeing his career go down the spout.

Anthony Weiner hoped to become New York’s next big shot
before he got his boxers twisted in a knot.
He didn’t know that Tweeting is a dangerous game
especially when one uses one’s very own name.

What made him think the sight of his underwear’s bulge
would induce women with him in virtual sex to indulge?
A quick glance at the asset of which he is so proud
is enough to confirm he’s not that well endowed.

Any young woman would become dismayed
when seeing the photo of the face he displayed.
There’s no way she would yearn our hero to hug
once she got a good look at his unprepossessing mug.

How come the man who turns out to be such a louse
usually has an intelligent and attractive spouse?
Is it because deep in his heart
he realizes he’s the one who is not that smart?

The moral of this tale is very clear
and I am glad I can repeat it here.
Any man who plans to cheat
must learn how to control his Tweet.
