Memorial Day

Let’s hear it for the soldiers
Our sons and daughters who
Are founders and protectors
Of everything we do

They knew about the dangers
But by service they were steered
Despite the threats to life and limb
They bravely volunteered

They come from every background
From humble house or suite
But due to that decision
I say they’re all elite

They fight against oppression
Relieve the set upon
They […]

Night and Day (A Parable)

Yes, there are some certain people
Who, for reasons great or slight
Don’t function well in daylight
And prefer to work at night

Though of all the population
They make up the merest fraction
They formed a coalition
And the group demanded action

They say, “Down with 9 to 5ers”
As they chant and march in line
And urge government to mandate
That we all work […]

What’s in a Name?

Citics of The Donald
Have as first among their claims
He lacks required tact
Because he calls opponents names

To rulers and elites across the globe
It just won’t look good
If leaders in our land
Say things like Little, Lyin’, Crooked

I started to agree
Then like a ton of bricks it’s hittin’ me
The left’s in love with names
So let’s got through their […]

Why We Fight

For weeks we’ve been obsessing on
The delegates and counting
While every day employment falls
And deficits keep mounting

The chalkers go on chalking
And the pols keep up the chatter
It’s easy, then, to overlook
The things that really matter

This week I read a story
That’s as sad as it is strange
That’s if you have insurance
From a government exchange

Remember how they promised […]

Tomorrow’s News Tonight

Cliches are often true
And it would be a grave mistake
To doubt the fact that politics
Some strange bedfellows make

A very different future
Might be just around the bend
The rival of my enemy
Could be my new best friend

In red states there’s a businessman
Who’s leading in the race
But pooh-bahs of his party
Hope to find a […]

An Ode to Morning

Lightly, to my Muse I tread
I know a poet who once said,

“A fine bud opens
To a finer flower
Not at the dawn
But at a later hour”

But rising with a rude awaken
I must conclude
I was mistaken
For do we want
The day, rehearsed?
Or views and news
Both fresh and first?

And what we hale as true and right
Is best seen by […]

Fresh Faces

Elections, it would seem to me
Are serious concerns
On each and every ballot
A country’s future turns

It may embrace a tyrant
Or elevate a fool
For politics encourages
The crafty and the cruel

Altruists, in this career
Must pay a higher price
It has a way of preying on
The noble and the nice

And every politician
Who thinks their star is rising
Can be a little […]

Natural Born Poet?

I don’t agree with Coulter
And I’m not a legal mind
How can Levin and Eastman, though
Together be so blind

It’s NOT that there’s a question
Or even any doubt
Or argument or wiggle room
That’s not what it’s about

Has care for jurisprudence
Ever stopped the Left before
As evidence of how they work
I give you Bush v. Gore

It’s a sure thing that […]

The Poetic Force Awakens

I’m not one to make predictions
So, considering the source,
I feel safe to say I sense
A new disturbance in the Force.

A malevolent projection
And we dare not speak its name
Whose appetite for power
Puts Maleficent to shame

Whose attitude and ego
Put her squarely on the shark side
While accusing her opponents
Of affection for the Dark Side

Her supporters all assure us
That […]
