Your Weekly Politickle: GRAVE RESPONSIBILITY

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

GRAVE RESPONSIBILITY
Though his body will surely decay,
A dead Democrat’s ballot may stay:
He moves in with the moles,
But remains on the rolls
And continues to vote anyway.

From the archive:

CITIZENSHIPWRECK
“We don’t care who’s the better debater
Or superior administrator,
We would rather not choose
Who will win, who will lose:
Can we just make somebody dictator?”
(2010)

DEMOCRAFT
“Our agenda aroused such objections
That we lost the dumb voters’ affections,
But there’s nothing to fear
When opponents appear
If you know how to steal the elections.”
((2010)

NIGHT OF THE VOTING DEAD
“We’ll be summoned from slumberous state
To endorse the quadrennial slate;
Then it’s back to the grave,
Where we’ll try to behave
‘Til the conclave of 2008!”
(2004)

REGISTERED VOTERS
The polls open and who comes in?
Mary Poppins and Mickey Finn,
Then Betty Boop
And Alley Oop,
Sherlock Holmes and Gunga Din!
(2004)

POLL FAULT
If they’re often the idlest of souls,
If their names can’t be found on the rolls,
If they won’t likely vote,
Why do we take note
Of opinions they offer in polls?
(1998)

WINNING BY A WHISKER
“Our Party is poised to prevail
With this new registration by mail:
All corpses and cats
Are staunch Democrats,
So our candidates simply can’t fail!”
(1998)

ROCK THE VOTE (TO SLEEP)
If free markets are something you dread,
Our Constitution is over your head,
And American history
To you is a mystery,
On election day, please, stay in bed!
(1998)

Last week’s limerick:

FLUKE
“I may act like a female mutt
And have multiple partners, but
That doesn’t mean
You can be obscene
And call me a you-know-what.”
