    Mitt, the twitt,
    Is a nit wit.
    Presidentially not fit
    To do his bit.
    Not a hit,
    but a git
    with no wit
    is our Mr. Mitt...

    Answer only in rhyming poetry... Test your skill!

      #Romneyshambles

      Mittens rode in to town
      onlookers observed the clown
      no statesman was he as he ridiculed me
      but that didn't bring me down
      As he stepped off the very small plane
      and looked all around with disdain
      folks pointed and jeered 'he really is weird'
      but the show will go on all the same

          No, Sophia, yours was poetry, mine became a ditty, what a pity, perhaps I should blame Mitty. smile

          Hey GMWilliams... smile

          You're supposed to respond in rhyme
          Even thought it takes some time
          To say political things
          About tyrants and kings
          And it doesn't cost a dime!

      Mitt and Barry went to town,
      Ridin' on a pony.
      Yankee Doodle, looking on,
      Said 'Man, that pair is Phoney.'

      One is rich, we don't want that,
      The other's rich indeed.
      One hides his taxes under his hat
      The other his whole history.

    Obama wears a frown

    The sad smile of a pathetic clown

    Insisting he is right

    Prepared to compel us with his might

    A narcissist with a bloodlust calling

    No remorse for those that have fallen!

      Umm. I'd rewrite the last line to say, "No remorse for those who are falling."

      But otherwise, good! smile

          Oh, sorry, I didn't get that. I interpreted it to mean the economic fall out - and it rhymed better!

    Keep state secrets?
    Not I
    You ask me
    I cannot lie

      About Bain, he lied,
      Tax? he defied,
      In London, he tried,
      In 2012, he's denied.

      Unless asked about tax
      when i refuse to give max
      but who gives a **** about facts
      not i.
      They say dressage is for the elite
      but i swear i do not eat meat
      no dog will you find on my roof
      that youtube image was spoof
      i can turn this country around
      you just have to give me some ground
      an asset stripper, not i
      i'm just a regular guy.... big_smile:

    Poetry on HP? Well, I'll be damned!

    I though poetry was to be banned!

    Don't let Matthew Kirk see this thread --

    If you're rhyming words he will have your head!

    That's how it is with Matthew Kirk --

    He's far above poetry. Or perhaps he's just a... hubber who hates poetry.

      Everyone has a chance to opine

      sounding like a bovine

      with thoughts in their head

      need not be said

      for their opinions are like a fine whine!

    There once was a man from Michigan

    An election he set out to win

    He tried very hard

    To be chosen on the card

    But the people did not believe his spin

    Obama was stuck with the terrible muck
    left by Bush, the inelegant douche.
    Now he sighs, as he tries,
    To have the wit to beat a twit.

      I once threw a shoe at his head                            (lord bush)
      incarcerated, humiliated, i bled
      on national tv was he
      ducked and dived like mohamed ali
      and wall street they are so divine
      yet i make out they are swine
      how will this sad saga end
      when we all refuse to bend
      so be it.
