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

The Washington Follies

That countries spy on their enemies is no surprise
but snooping on friends can be unwise.
When the culprit is their trusted Washington ally
the victims ask if whoever gave the order is imbibing too much rye.

Now off their undercover actions the lid has been blown
by Edward Snowden, formerly one of their own.
While some in the U.S. say what he did was hateful,
because he told the truth others are grateful.
