Limerick Of The Day
I'm still waiting in the wings.
For all their hoot and holler,
for all their rant and rave,
when it comes to my own dollar
politicians always crave,
I'm a thumbs down, happy staller.
Like Simple Simon at the Fair,
with "pie in the sky" everywhere,
their promised "Change"
of the widest range,
they simply have not any.
Today's Tax Code,
with its heavy load,
not even lukewarm,
offer warts from a different toad.
For a candidate happy,
who does things snappy.
no matter their sex or style,
I'll give my saved dollar,
And then I will holler,
"Good government sure took awhile!"
