Prior Restraint

.
Not a peep
About the Veep
Until the call is done.
You cannot tweet
’Til he’s complete,
Or otherwise make fun.
 .
If he should gaffe
The White House staff
May have the time enough,
To help walk back
The VP’s knack
Of speaking off the cuff.
 .
The loyal press
Will not express
A single, small complaint,
For they agree
The odd VP
Requires some restraint

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.
