There is a people – oh, how big the heart! –
A heart that swells like a primeval ooze
Till others not as blessed must take a part,
Forced by an overflowing they don’t choose.

And, oh! how wonderful those hearts now feel
That others, too, have done the good they deemed
With what the righteous from them rightly steal –
Not steal, but take by all the plans they schemed.

And, oh! how those blest hearts now fill with pride
That theirs the nobler way, the higher road,
That they, a cut above the baser side
Have helped man’s load by adding to his load.

It seems they think it some great human feat,
A merit in the doing that they dream
Not by their back and boon, but from their seat
By forcing others into what they scheme.

Maxine

In minutes, these were seen (near back to back):
That Maxine Waters would remain on track
And fight the Donald till he was impeached.
And second, near consensus has been reached –
That Murdercrats, her party’s out of touch.
I’m thanking her, the protests, and all such!

……The Constitution Breaker

The House speech that Nettie is making
Is said to be protocol breaking.
But something far worse –
The Obama curse –
Executive orders, power-taking.

          Just Desserts

In nations where a vote is cast,
The wicked sometimes rule.
Unlike the cream that rises up,
It sometimes is a fool.

But one may ask from whence they came,
Those leaders: dolt or brute.
They’re surely from another tree
That bears a foreign fruit.

Peer closely at the populace,
At all who cast a vote.
There must be some to pin this on;
There’s someone who’s the goat.

But when we take a look around,
We find no gremlins, elves.
One has a wicked leader when
We are that way ourselves.

Here’s to the congressman named Weiner
Who lied and then decided to come cleaner,
But he swears he will stay
And won’t go away.
New York, you can make him a has-beener.
