Welcome back to the Sunday Morning Poetry Throwdown. FYI – there were no reader submission for last week’s throwdown. I am only mildly disappointed but I thought it worth mentioning because I am confident that I will wear you down sooner or later. This isn’t going to stop.
Today’s throwdown category is Current Events. Please show your work in the comments. Here’s my submission. I call it “Election Strategy“.
The Owl and the Pussy-cat stood by the sea
Near a beautiful drab gray boat.
They looked like honey, and talked about money,
And wrapped up the country’s vote.
The Owl spoke much like a nerd/rock star
And said what lifted our hearts:
‘O lovely Country! O Country we love,
What a beautiful Country you are,
What a beautiful Country you are!’
Cow said to the Hog, ‘Better order the dog
While we still have Sam Kass.
O let us vacation on the tab of the nation
Before they throw you out on your ass!’
They’ll jabber away, for three months and a day,
But he already knew he was done.
Lo! There with fresh wood David Axelrod stood
And asked “Got an ailing loved one?
We can plant them before morning sun.”
There is a rare blog: Cripes Suzette
It’s the finest on all of the internet
Once Suzette decreed a throw-down
Like a poetry “ho down”
“Ho” down? Can’t Moochelle get up yet?
You’re just a tough act to follow.
Slow Joe Biden, bangers and mash
Gave a speech and made us laugh
When Paul Ryan came to play
Slow Joe kept talking anyway
