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

Newt’s Moonatic Madness


When Newt Gingrich mounts the stage with his duck-like waddle
T.V. viewers are on edge to hear his latest twaddle. 
At his last appearance they wondered what liquid refreshment he had imbibed
before his planned moon colony he described.

Although to the sane members of his audience he appeared to be delirious
he sounded as if he really was serious.
About his delusions there’s no room for debate
when he says with 13,000 inhabitants the moon  could become  a U.S. state.
Was it a coincidence that a claim so loco
was made in Florida in a place with the odd name of Cocoa?
Or could it be because that is the next primary state
Where NASA is waiting to learn its fate?

No mention of who would pay for Newt’s harebrained scheme
or his megalomaniac pipedream.
Is it too much to hope that the first and only inhabitant on his moon
would be Newt himself, the Republican Party’s bombastic loon?
