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

A Center for Disease Control Case

No-one who listens to them can be in any doubt
that Romney and side-kick Ryan suffer from foot-in-mouth.
It’s now obvious among the Republican ranks the disease is spreading fast
as Todd Akin’s comment hit us like an Arctic blast.

He wants the whole abortion discussion to reshape
by presenting himself as an authority on rape.
A victim, he assures us, who is suffering a sexual assault,
to the flow of unwelcome sperm can put a halt.

Romney’s V.P. – An Echo of His Master’s Voice

No more speculation about who it will be
now that Romney has finally named his presidential V.P.
The noise heard was a collective groan
when Mitt announced in choosing Paul Ryan he had picked a clone.

When Paul agrees with Mitt that money given to the wealthy to the poor trickles down
does he know he’s quoting a phrase coined by a clown?
Humorist Will Rogers used the expression
to try to raise the people’s spirits during the Depression.

Romney: An Incurable Case of Foot-in-Mouth


Republican candidate Romney drew up a travel trip
to prove on world affairs he has a grip.
To show he can be presidential
and persuade voters he has a foreign policy credential.

If Mitt believes about what happens abroad U.S. voters care a bag of beans
he should go and tell that to the marines.
Their concerns are about events in the U.S. of A.
so they question why he chose to go away.
