Bush’s Surge Speech: A Mad Preview

Another Bush war speech is on the horizon. Oh, goody! Actually, I’m not sure I’ll be able to force myself to watch next week’s speech, in which Bush is expected to announce a politically motivated “surge and accelerate plan.” But I’ve heard enough Bush speeches to sum this one up in a limerick, without even seeing it:

Bush’s Surge Speech: A Mad Preview
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It appears that we’re right on the verge
Of  what Bush and McCain call a surge.
Once again, George the Madman
Behaves like an adman
Whose product leads only to dirge.

    A lot of wisdom packed into a few well-chosen rhymes, Mad. I look forward to the day when both of us can write humorous poems again. Meanwhile, thanks for “telling it like it is.”

    Thanks so much, Jude and Steve. And Jude you’re welcome to link to me any time. And Steve, it definitely would be nice to feel funny once again about what’s going on in this country.
