Your Weekly Politickle: MEMORIAL DAY


Your Weekly Politickle: MEMORIAL DAY

Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:

If you’re honest and also well-bred,
You’ll pay homage to all who have bled
– Wearing blue, wearing gray –
And on this special day
Also honor Confederate dead.

From the archive

In 1400 and 92
Columbus sailed the ocean blue.

Tell us more, tell us more
About US. U.S.,
That’s US. Tell us more.
We’re mad, we’re mad
About history, U.S. history,
Hopping mad.
Rap US up, Rap US up.
Who can tell us more
Of our history?
You can. I can.
American. American.

Columbus knew that the earth was round.
He sailed west for the East and a New World was found.
Tell us more, tell us more, ETC.

From the Old World more explorers came
From England and Holland, and France and Spain.
Tell us more, tell us more, ETC.

The settlers in Jamestown nearly starved.
Captain Smith said, to eat they had to work hard.
Tell us more, tell us more, ETC.

Read the entire “History Chant”

Last week’s limerick

“We’re surrounded by partisan haters,
Resisters, subversives, and traitors:
We have struggled and strained
To get the swamp drained,
But we’re up to our asses in gators.”
