Let’s put school kids in janitor’s shoes
And start ‘em out young cleaning loos
We must now make haste
For the future they’ll face
(I’m just looking at all avenues)
How can anyone say I am hateful?
It’s a well-paying job just be grateful
Hey – now pizza’s a veg
You can have a nice wedge
And hot dogs and beans by the plateful
But Callista and I must have foie
Or else we feel terribly blah
But you have your Cheetos
Beef jerky, Doritos
You say you’re in need? I say ha!
He’s a man aptly named is our Newt
He’s the Lizard of Ooze in a suit
He’s the grinch who steals yule
A smooth talking ghoul
A well heeled world-class prostitute
Damn I hope Goongrich’ll run
For shark-like comedians he’s chum
A foot in the mouth pest
More baggage than Southwest
Hey, Nit, take the money and run
I’m a corporate hobbyist
I was Freddy Mac’s “historian”
You don’t need to be worryin’
That 600 thou
Was for telling them how
To make loans free of strife

I’m still shocked that this guy is getting even the slightest bit of support for his run for the oval office. Thanks for putting into such fine words what so many of us think of this guy. I think the Huffington Post should give you your own column 🙂
Thanks Janece, that would be cool. i appreciate the props. continue…
Oh, Mr. Powers, such a way with words you have.

i love how you call me Mr. Powers. it makes me laugh. thanx for the comment NM glad to give you a giggle. continue…
“A well heeled world-class prostitute”
Waiting for CNN to run with this quote. Neatly says it all.
Another fine barium enema revealing the festering sores of the body politic.
mental barium enemas is what this country’s electorate desperately needs. Thanks EG continue…
YOU are just no end entertainment & comment. 10 stars Barking ITD. Another great poem.

Well done! Newt is unbelievable. Like a candidate put together by the Onion. I did like what someone said “Newt is a dumb person’s idea of what a smart person sounds like.”
“Like a candidate put together by the Onion.”
Ha! That’s the cherry on top of the ballad sundae.
yeah, why didn’t i think of that??? thanks Averil. continue…
“like a candidate put together by the onion” as i wrote to Averil ” yeah, why didn’t i think of that???” well said…and i believe the other “dumb people smart people quote is from Paul Krugman prolly in the NY Times. thanks Lisa h. continue…
Spoken like a true poet!
thank you Nancy – more to come. continue…
I learn so much here; & I am thrilled to be armed with the knowledge I can point to congress the next time the girls complain about not being allowed to have school lunches.
You’ve captured such a good likeness of ol’ Nit here. I hope he feels that cold breeze, too. I know — wishful thinkin’.
Well Re, we do what we can eh? thanks for reading, for the comment, and for your support – and kindred spirit. continue…
