It’s Sunday and today’s poem by The Bard of Murdock reflects what all conservatives are feeling after the elections as he responds to the blather that spews from that leftest shill at WaPo, E.J. Dionne. He originally published his poem on Saturday, November 10, 2012. Please be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.
I strode into the public square
To politick the throng.
I hoped to get a hearing there,
But found that I was wrong.
I spoke of freedom to achieve,
By labor well applied.
But multitudes would sooner reave
Than have the gilt subside.
I spoke to them of wrong and right,
Of evil and the good.
But greed and envy, hate and spite
Were all they understood.
I spoke to them of sacrifice,
Of temperance and restraint.
But welfare was their asking price,
And Marx their patron saint.
Perhaps a generation hence
The spell that Marx has cast,
Will yield to truth and common sense
And virtue’s reign at last.
And thus, returning to the square,
I politick the crowd.
I hope to get a hearing there;
Defeated, but unbowed.
- The Bard of Murdock
- My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
