CANTOR IN THE MIST
Cousin Lady Erica* cries across the ocean blues
to cousin Madison and his Specters†: you’ve
forsaken my spirit to lift an old tea ship,
adrift the socialist moor of yore,
a fog and marsh imported.
The U.S. congress of heath
is peaty, bogged down in
you petty porkers afoul,
the sheep’s in the swamp,
the cow is in the heath
The liberty choir has lost its voice.
Hush petty Pelosi, let Eric Cantor sing.
The sheep are simply cowering,
the corn’s not in the cow
Hush little Pelosi and David Obey,
a thirteen dollar tax cut
won’t feed the middle class,
any more than pap will
Much ado about
the Shrub League players.
— Snerd Lee Limbaugh
