Muted Media Blues

Civil war rages.
Generals speak out.
The press must be in cages:
There’s a coverage drought.

Voting day’s coming.
Everything’s at stake.
George Bush is surely humming,
Cause reporters ain’t awake.

(Thanks to Eric Boehlert for the inspiration. Via Avedon Carol)

(My political verse is collected here.)

    There’s almost a Dorothy Parker flavor about this one, Mad. I presume you don’t mind the comparison… after all, she, too, was mad. :-)
