Shadowy Mitt Romney (With Apologies To Robert Louis Stevenson)

Shadowy Mitt Romney (With Apologies To Robert Louis Stevenson)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I have a little binder that is filled with clever gals,
But what can be the use of them — I’ll have to ask my pals.
They are very, very diff’rent. They are poor, and I am rich.
And I make them jump before me. They refuse, then they’re a bitch.

The funniest thing about them is the way they do their jobs.
Not at all like proper workers, such as Teds and Gregs and Bobs.
And they sometimes shoot up taller while they’re asking for a raise.
But to me they’re always little, barely worth my regal gaze.

They haven’t got a notion of how peons ought to work.
I can always make a fool of them — my second-fav’rite perk.
They long to stay beside me. But I wonder if they’re dykes.
Yet they shamefully leave early. They must feed their spouse and tykes.

One morning very early, before the sun was up
I rose and said, “You’re fired!” Why? They never made me sup.
Then I found another binder to replace those vacant spots:
A tome that’s filled with women — desp’rate feminine have-nots.

    I am horribly sick of politics, but this is the best commentary I’ve read in ages! Excellent!

  6. Mary says:

    I heard that former President Clinton was interested in this “binder of women.” With his history, I know he would find it helpful.

  7. nico says:

    This is fine work–sharp humor, well written. With politics, we have to either laugh or cry. Thanks for making me laugh!

  8. Kim Nelson says:

    Hilarious! Just the right amount of levity regarding the faux pas of the day.

  9. Hoot Gibson says:

    Who Am I?

    The letters in my surname
    Are the secret of my fame.
    Now, a leader I want to be
    If you’ll vote… only for me.
    “More money” is my favorite game.

  10. Veralynne says:

    The whole thing is a joke–on We, the People. If it weren’t so pathetic, it would be hilarious! But, indeed, we must laugh to keep from crying, unfortunately.

    It hardly matters what rMONEY will say
    Brilliant writers of his “gaffes” get high pay!
    He’s just playin’ as fill-in
    ‘Cuz Obama’s a shoo-in
    Our “leaders?” CORPORATE personhoods anyway.
