“Mr. Bumble Was Right” a poem by the Bard of Murdock

It’s Sunday and, in today’s poem by The Bard of Murdock, the Bard makes use of a line from Dickens’ Oliver Twist to satirize how ridiculous are some of the laws we are passing in this country. This poem was originally published on Sunday, 28, 2913. Please be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.


Mr. Bumble Was Right

It’s come to this:
You now can parse
A phrase about
A chubby arse
Before a judge,
Before the law,
And thus compel
The state withdraw
The awful charge,
The awful shame,
The bully tag
Against your name.

Your record clear,
Your name restored,
Your lips are free
To draw the sword
Of repartee
Against the blokes
Whose heavy mass
Engender jokes,
And through again
The looking glass
Designed to parse
The use of ass.

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.
