Bye Michele, you were our prom pick
If jokes are bombs then you’re atomic
Goodbye to ya
It’s left us short a major comic
Michele your routine’s are outrageous
You should play the world’s great stages
Then a year or two in Vegas
Glad to see your sidekick Perry
Will go on that’s very very
Good, he’ll shine
In South Caroline
His pratfalls are all legendary
Too bad – you and Rick were money
Loads of laffs both gaffs and punn-y
Now you’re gone
But Rick goes on
We have your faith he’ll bring the funny
Still Michele we’re broken hearted
Such great laughs have now departed
What a clown
But you fell down
Oy – Miss America has farted
Now Fox TV will come a-courting
(They like jokes in their “reporting”)
You’ll do real well
We foresee some coffee snorting
So you and Marcus take some time
Shop for dresses – dance and and dine
We’ll be here
When you reappear
To make us spit-take our wine

Nicely done! Bravo!
thank you Susan i appreciate the props. continue…
Love the dresses verse, really, had to have either that or “beard”.
And how you aren’t providing color commentary on a network is beyond me.
i laffed when i wrote it EG. thanks man. continue…
Hmm … “shop for dresses” … for herself or for Marcus? Sorry. Can’t help wondering. They are a very odd couple.
my meaning was dresses for both – of course…that’s exactly what i meant, and why i wrote it that way. they are an odd couple indeed Susan. thanks for reading and commenting…i do appreciate it. continue…
Barking in the Dark speaks his mind
His satire often leaves a sting behind
He sees through politics with clarity
His comments range from seriousness to hilarity
He is most interestingly, one of a kind
wow Liz, thanks for the poem…i love it. i hope you are writing. happy new year. continue…
In Iowa all we have heard
Is political theater of the absurd.
Bachmann, Santorum and Perry,
The more the merry.
But the voters chose a rich turd.
Keep up the fight!
hahahaha…nice work..Jonathan…or Maria… thanks for reading and for the poem. continue…
Not right that she’ll most likely get the book deal etc etc. out of it all …won’t really miss her, it’s not like we had a “Tina Faye” to amuse us the way so much great material was gleemed from Sarah Palin.
i dunno…i think she was a comedian’s wet dream. asi es la vida. thanks for your take. continue…
Well done! Another baffling person who likes to make up her own reality.
i’ll say. thanks Lisa h. i always appreciate your keen mind. well said. continue…
Agree with She Speaks. On the bright side, as so lyrically pointed out by you Tony, we still have Perry.
Sadly we also have Santorum.
The only reason that jackass had such a good showing is because he said nothing in the week prior to indicate the severity of his brain damage and organic craziness.
I predict he won’t get a nod from anyone, not to mention the GOP. I base this on his prior bizarre Michelle-Perry public comments.
Exxxxcellent -again my best Mr. Burns imitation-
Thank you Tony! Great ballad
i’m working up Santorum’s exit piece as we (virtually) speak…he is a most dangerous fella. this is a funny comment…just made me laugh…i thank you for your props my dear. continue…
Now I feel rather empty since she was often the victim of my sarcastic GOP jokes.
awwwww…you’ll get over it Michelle, i am almost certain. and we still have Perry for the nonce. thanks for the read, and the comment. i always appreciate same. continue…
