Filner’s Follies

I spent a week in therapy
To teach my roving paws,
That modern social etiquette
Should give them cause to pause.
I stayed in place another week
To teach my wanton lips,
They cannot verbalize at work
On bosoms, legs, and hips.
A fortnight spent in therapy
Should make me right as rain,
And may indemnify me yet
From claims by Jill and Jane.

And if my days in therapy
Their anger will not quench,
I’ll paint each in the media
An unforgiving wench.
Oh my, did I just use a word
That might the dames offend?
Another day in therapy
Perhaps I need to spend.
.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.
