“Room and Board” a peom by the Bard of Murdock

It’s Sunday and today’s poem by The Bard of Murdock demonstrates just how far out in Left field Mayor Bloomberg really is.. The poem was originally published on Saturday, March 9, 2013. Please be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.


Room and Board

I fired up my private jet
To take a weekend jaunt.
I planned to visit Washington,
New York, and then Vermont.
But dinner in the capitol,
With all the drinks I had,
Reduced my wallet down to size
And left me short a tad.
I soldiered on to Kennedy
And grabbed a limousine,
Before my business partners showed
And made an ugly scene.
My driver left me on the street
Outside a shelter’s door.
I thought I’d chance a place to sleep
I had not tried before.
The food was warm, the beds were cold,
But people there were nice.
And even with the wait in line,
It came at bargain price.
I think next month when I return
Aboard my private jet,
I’ll once again take room and board
On Bloomberg’s public debt.

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.
