Rising Oceans Aren’t Risible (Limerick)

That Romney sure has quite the sense of humor. Here’s an example of his convention speech wit:

“President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family.”

Rising Oceans Aren’t Risible (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The sea level’s rising, but Mitt
Treats that danger as grist for his wit:
Mocks a serious threat
With a joke that’s all wet—
A GOP cheer-swelling hit.

    I enjoyed your limerick, Madeline, and greatly appreciate your talent in writing them. I personally try to steer clear of the political arena in the blogosphere. (Which doesn’t mean I don’t have political opinions – I certainly do.) But I appreciate the share!

    With the same foresight and integrity that brought us the 2008 financial melt-down, the GOP will deal with global warming.
