Convention Diary

Of course I booed the deity;
Including God was wrong.
And then I booed Jerusalem
And sang a drinking song.
I raised a glass to 44,
The savior of our times.
I cursed the reign of 43,
And cursed again his crimes.
I cheered for little Sandra Fluke,
Our finest legal mind,
Before I fired up my bong
And started to unwind.
And when our favorite, Bubba, spoke
It fired up the crowd,
He’s such a brazen, shameless rogue,
We couldn’t be more proud.
But reproductive politics
Was our convention theme,
And Charlotte was, for all of us,
A Democratic dream.

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.
