Your Weekly Politickle: REVOLTING DEVELOPMENT

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

REVOLTING DEVELOPMENT
Revolution’s a natural desire
When we lack what our natures require,
But it loses its glow
When oppressed people go
From the frying pan into the fire.

From the archive:

IT COULD’VE BEEN WORSE
Democrats in the White House are scary.
Jimmy Carter and Bill made us wary
And relieved there weren’t more:
Mike Dukakis, Al Gore,
And spandexterous dullard John Kerry!
(2007)

WORLD FREEDOM
If freedom can come to Romanians,
Albanians, Lithuanians, Ukrainians,
Why must others abide
While their freedom’s denied:
Brother Syrians, Saudis, Iranians?
(2006)

Last week’s verse:

ARTIFICIAL FAMINE
There’s no benefit to coal
If you cannot dig a hole,
And the value is nil
Of oil you can’t drill.
Who would favor such control?
