Your Weekly Politickle: AUTOPSY-TURVY

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

AUTOPSY-TURVY
“I was shot in the back of the head,
Or, perhaps, I was strangled instead.
Don’t let logic deceive:
Though it’s hard to believe,
It was suicide. That’s why I’m dead.”

From the archive

WHO, M.E.?
He had dirt on the Clintons, he said,
And the next thing he knew he was dead,
But the coroner lied
And declared suicide
From two shots in the back of the head.
(2019)

ENDANGERED SPECIES
Ron Brown was but one of those linked
To the friends of Bill Clinton who blinked.
Who’ll next join the roster
With the late Vincent Foster
Of the cronies confirmed as extinct?
(1998)

Last week’s limerick

CLOSE
Such behavior and no one complains?
Such a lunatic should be in chains!
It’s as plain as can be
And a toddler can see
That the emperor has no brains.
