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

Ted Cruz’s Silly-bluster

A Texas Republican senator named Ted Cruz
on Obamacare swore he would put the screws.
He stood up and members of the Senate addressed
hoping with his ramblings they would be impressed.

That he is opposed to improving health care he left not a doubt
when he said the Affordable Care Act should be thrown out.
Told many could not afford medical insurance he said “So what!
They’ll have to put up with what they haven’t got”.

If and when Ted himself gets sick
he’ll get medical attention mighty quick.
He will not be expected any health insurance to buy
so long as he’s the spouse of Heidi, a Goldman Sachs employee who is flying high.

Because he kept wandering from the theme under discussion
it was suspected he might be suffering from concussion.
When at bedtime to his daughters he told the story of Green Eggs and Ham
had he of Canadian whiskey had too many a dram?

His listeners were left bemused
when the wrong ending to the Dr. Seuss story he used.
He did not know the narrator, instead of hating it, said he could not wish
to ever eat a more delectable dish.

Ted’s greatest fans are the whole Tea Party crew
who are still serving up their venomous brew.
For reasons unknown he quoted eminences such as Ashton Kutcher, the actor,
and the Denny’s restaurant chain as another significant factor.

His accomplishments, however, are at least two:
for almost 22 hours he kept on without once going to the loo.
And rumour has it he was heard to brag
he did it without even having to use an astronaut’s bag.

Although it may seem to be a claim that’s absurd,
it is said he gave the language a brand new word.
When he stood up he said he was filibustering,
but listeners said his performance should be called silly-blustering.
