Katy Bar the Door

Oh, Katy bar the door.
And Katy dim the light.
Al-Qaeda has a plan.
Al-Qaeda wants a fight.
Oh, Katy get the kids.
And Katy start the car.
Al-Qaeda may be close.
We don’t know where they are.
Oh, Katy we must run,
And Katy do it now!
Al-Qaeda will attack;
We know not where or how.

And when we reach a place
Beyond al-Qaeda’s reach,
Oh, Katy build a wall
Al-Qaeda cannot breach.
And then we will be safe.
And then we will be free.
Behind a higher wall,
And happy as can be.

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.
