Your Weekly Politickle: SCOUTING FOR THE PROSE

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

SCOUTING FOR THE PROSE
Before hiring an “analyst,” quiz him
To detect any barbarism:
That banality
“Physicality,”
The grotesque “athleticism.”

From the archive

HOGGWASH
“Receive our wisdom, peasants,
And be grateful for our presence
As your benefactors,”
Say anchors and actors,
Athletes, and adolescents.
(2018)

OUT OF BOUNDS
If you’re good on a stage or a court,
You’ll enjoy our unflagging support,
But don’t offer us clues
To your vacuous views:
Stick to acting or playing a sport.
(2017)

Last week’s limerick

BOOSTED INCOME
“Covid Karen’s addicted to shots
And is filling up lots of my slots:
Just today I re-goosed her
With her 25th booster
And re-jabbed two or three of her tots.”
