Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
It is hard to play tennis alone,
It is hard to play chess on your own,
It is so hard to do
Anything that takes two
When your partner is not in the zone.
From the archive
“To be honest, I like you a lot,
But a woman I simply am not.”
“Oh, my gosh, it’s uncanny!
Are you truly a tranny?”
“I’m not human. I’m really a bot.”
AI YI YI, ROBOT
I don’t think it understands
I’m the one that gives commands:
It cannot be controlled,
Will not do what it’s told,
And refuses to untie my hands.
“Not much longer must I wait
To embrace my perfect mate:
She’s arriving soon
And will make me swoon
When she steps out of her crate.”
BETTER OR WORSE?
Married couples aren’t cutting their knots
And divorce rates are lessening lots.
What’s the reason for this
Sudden outbreak of bliss?
Everyone’s getting married to bots.
When first I was her suitor,
She said no one was cuter;
But now I find
That I’ve been blind:
She’s in love with her computer!
Last week’s politickle
It’s too late when the moment is past,
The abduction is frightfully fast,
It’s the worst of your fears
When your child disappears,
And forever your heartache will last.
