It’s Sunday and today’s poem by The Bard of Murdock questions the sincerity of Nancy Pelosi. The poem was published on Saturday, February 16, 2013. Please be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.
When ’ere I think of congressmen
The images I see,
Are bathed in tones of lofty deeds
And hues of dignity.
I think of Jesse Jackson’s son
Who lived in harmony,
With all the noble aims of man,
Or will, when he is free.
I think in terms of leadership
Defined by Harry Reid,
Who forces passage of the bills
His members never read.
From Murtha, Hays, and Barney Frank,
To Richmond and Delay,
The perfect pitch the Congress makes
We savor every day.
Do not, I beg, reduce the pay
Of those whose pedigree,
Reflects the iridescent tone
Of perfect dignity.
- 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.
