Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
At the Winter Olympics, aghast,
All the skiers see someone fly past;
They’re left out in the cold
As Obama gets gold:
No one’s ever gone downhill so fast!
From the archive:
If unfailing commitment’s the thing
From which ultimate victories spring,
Then the spectators know
That the medals should go
To the Christians who live in Beijing.
YEAR OF THE RATS
Snowstorm and earthquake and flood,
Protest and riot and blood,
Algae in water,
Locust on order:
Chinese Olympics big dud.
Last week’s verse:
AN INCONVENIENT MIRTH
With the waning of warming pretense
Putting climate change on the defense,
Humbugs have a new hoax:
The world’s threatened by jokes
Being made at the humbugs’ expense.
