It’s Sunday with The Bard of Mudock

The following poem was originally published by The Bard of Murdock on Wednesday, August 10, 2011. [ Note : Be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.]

_________

The New Nixons

________
*
When Richard Milhous Nixon
Would use the IRS
To audit his opponents,
They killed him in the press.
*
But Dennis J. Kucinich
Apparently is free,
To make demands for data
From folks at S&P.
*
The downgrade has endangered
The Democratic way
Of spending with no limits,
And now there’s hell to pay.
*
His friends who run the Senate

Wholeheartedly agree,
And want their banking panel
To get the S&P.
*
Chairman Tim P. Johnson
Of South Dakota fame,
Would have the voting public
Think S&P to blame.
*
Perhaps the voting public
Should take another look,
At whom we call the victim
And whom we call the crook.

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.

  1. There are no heroes here. Personally, I think DC and Wall Street deserve one another. I say put ’em in a room, take away the money and watch them claw each others’ eyes out.
