Election eve "sonnet"


The day before the crazies meet fraidies:
Second Amendment remedies and radical Tenthers
Nativist frights and Christianist ladies
Cultists who think Ayn Rand's a real philosopher

vs.

Cowardly congressmen hiding from votes
Dissing their leaders and looking quite hurt
Looking for quick getaways in speedy boats
From a House next year of Louie Gohmerts


Aqua buddhas and witches caused quite a fuss
The Rent Is Too Damn High, Mr. President dude
Those Hispanics in ads are menacing us
Twenty-eleven promises congressional feuds

      And Wednesday's child is full of woes
      Post-election postpartum "I told you so"s
