Vintage Words


The man in the House said,

"You stole my right to speak."

But the woman in chambers

said, "I want to be the Iron Lady."


The people standing outside

the ropes cried, "Foul!"

Shutting down free healthcare

is like closing the jails

and letting everyone out.

No. It's not.


The main speeches were awesome

in the poetic sense. Tell me what

a furlough is. Rhetoric is sent out

sweetly to receptive ears.


The free time will make everyone

take up knitting scarves for the troops

returning home. At least there is still

running water to hand wash uniforms

and the electricity will remain

on for now.


We actually may iron all the medals

and ribbons for integrity, fidelity,

and faithfulness to acknowledge

those unloosing the parade confetti.

You Got It SSmoothie Poet

Can't borrow your way out of debt, Auntie and Unce Sam. Eventually, somebody had to say halt! A long shut down might be a wake-up call to the country's citizens. A short war meant it was a bluff, we didn't mean to scare so many people. Imagine the phone calls and e-mails pouring in to D.C. I'll settle down soon. I promise. It was a Sam Slam, s'all. Be well. slc
