Blessed Are The Lawnmakers
(Dedicated to Senator Grassley of Iowa)
Every politician on the stump
(tree stump, that is) promises
much. They speak of high ideals,
gaze toward the purple horizon
and survey the lordly forest.
When they reach the Capitol
in Washington, they mutate
into Lawnmakers: bugs lost
among the blades of grass
unable to see the trees.
Christopher T. George
Nice one Chris.
Politicians always tell us what they would do if elected.
Then once elected, they can't see the would for the trees!
Very good Chris,
A politician giving an honest answer, to an honest question...is as simple as nailing Jelly to the wall!
Ha ha, thanks, dazza and Kevin.
Writer Edgar Allan Poe is usually regarded as a morose character not known for his sense of humor, but he wrote a humorous truism here: "I can see no objection to gentlemen 'standing for Congress' ? provided they stand on one side ? nor to their 'running for Congress' ? if they are in a very great hurry to get there ? but it would be a blessing if some of them could be persuaded into sitting still, for Congress, after they arrive."
Kev, how do you think we could change all that?
