Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
If an honest and well-meaning cop
Doesn’t know when he better had stop,
He is bound to regret
The abuse he will get
For arresting a world-famous fop.
From the archive:
BLANK LIKE ME
Census takers who tally my head
Will not know if I’m black, white, or red:
Because, in the space
To designate race,
I’ll inscribe the word “human” instead.
Adding Euro- and Afro- won’t do:
Ethnic conflict will only ensue.
No hyphen for me:
I’m happy to be
An American through and through.
Last week’s limerick:
PAY TO PLAY
When our candidates vie for a post,
We Americans rightfully boast:
The position will go
To the one who can show
He’s the one who will offer the most.
