Another Burden

Both sides of the gun control debate in the US are now talking about race...sort of.

Another Burden
by Rick Lime

Into gun control Uncle Sam delves
As a bigger blight falls from his shelves
“This burden’s not fair
It seems too much to bear
 When they’re doing it all to themselves”


Just to provide a little context, the annual Barriere Fall Fair & Rodeo is an event not to be missed :-)

by Rick Lime

Up in camp or gone just down the coast
As I wander from pillar to post
'Tween my folks and the Fair
And the girl with red hair
It's the potholes that I miss the most

A woman was planning a flight

A woman was planning a flight
by Rick Lime

Check out Mad Kane's weekly Limeric-Off

Hosts of angels, wings beating in flight
Held celestial bodies just right
Physics pulled back the curtain
But I'm still uncertain
How 'quantums' can shed any light

A fellow was planning a flight
But began with bordellos that night
In between lust and haste
The man's pants were misplaced
So they grounded the Casanovite

Before his career'd taken flight
Yogi Berra quotes all sounded trite
Much later however
They sounded more clever
Like "Errors I made can't be right"

First she gasped then she took off in flight
In the morning, when first she caught sight
Of his thing, oh so ugly
With which she had smugly
Gone humpety bump in the night

Ulysses was planning a flight
From the Siren's bay late in the night
He would face the high sea
In his bid to be free
'Cuz, his bark was much worse in their bight

A couple was planning a flight
With the mile high club in their sight
But the john was so small
That he leaned 'gainst the wall
And the door handle got a delight

A fellow was planning a flight
'Cuz the DA intends to indict
So he'll snorkel and scuba
Lay low in Aruba
And old Beach Boys lyrics recite

It outrageous how desperate the republicans are to disenfranchise blacks and other minorities.

by Rick Lime

Dare I say Judge Scalia, you dope
Though the Sovereign States pine and mope
Leave the voting rights act
Ratified and intact
And in fact, step aside, like the Pope

This related verse was inspired by one of those troll instigated facebook flame wars.

Democracy’s under attack
First they came for the poor and the black
Voter fraud’s a red herring
Scalia is wearing
The robes of a corporate hack

An Allegory

Some people are upset because the economy is broken and governments are dysfunctional. Other people spend their time intentionally disrupting the economy and subverting democracy.
An Allegory
by Rick Lime

Henny Penny’s completely seduced
Foxy Loxy’s in charge of the roost
And the question he begs
“Who’s been stealing the eggs?”
Penny ponders, confused and obtused
