My Family Needs Me (Limerick and Video)

I’m always amused when politicians and other public figures get into legal hot water and develop a sudden urge to spend more time with their family.

They generally issue some sort of lame press release that nobody believes and then, if we’re lucky, they spend a whole lot of time in prison.  If we’re not so lucky, we get to watch them spout off on Fox News.

But getting back to their woefully inadequate press releases,  I thought as a public service I’d write a generic resignation limerick:

My Family Needs Me
By Madeleine Begun Kane

My family needs me — can’t stay.
I’m dismayed that I must go away.
But I want to spend time
With my wife, who’s sublime.
It’s not my indictment, okay?

You can watch it here on YouTube.

    And thanks Alan, though I’m not sure what you mean by serious.

    As for your question, I have two blogs — this one and a non-political humor blog.
