Limerick Ode To Marco Rubio

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) gave a speech today at the Brookings Institution. His appearance featured this amusing gaffe:

“I left my last page of the speech, does anyone have my last page? Did I Ieave it with you?”

Now such a slip-up wouldn’t ordinarily be limerick-worthy. However, Rubio seems to have a “glass house” problem:

Rubio calls President Obama “the most articulate and talented teleprompter reader in America,” a line that drew big laughter and applause in East Manatee.

Limerick Ode To Marco Rubio
By Madeleine Begun Kane

How ironic that Rubio’s known
To have thrown a speech-mockery stone
At Barack. It’s self-bruising
And rather amusing
When Rubio screws up his own.

    Ah, dear Marco: You see now, alas,
    What they say about houses of glass,
    When that stone you have flung
    Caroms back on YOUR tongue,
    And then knocks you down flat on your *ss!

    How ironic that Rubio is known
    As a man of big tales he has sewn
    His family comes from Cuba you see
    But just exactly when did they flew
    Is a subject he may come to bemoan.
