“Midlife Crisis” FLOTUS-Style (Limerick)

Michelle Obama addressed the burning question of her bangs on the Rachael Ray Show:

“This is my midlife crisis, the bangs. I couldn’t get a sports car,” she told Ray about the inspiration for her trendy new look. “They won’t let me bungee jump. So instead, I cut my bangs.”

“Midlife Crisis” FLOTUS-Style (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

“How dare you get bangs,” they harangue.
Michelle laughs at the Sturm and the Drang:
Bungee jumping was out.
So’s a sports car, no doubt.
So she changed up her “do” with a bang.

  2. Nancy Reagan, “To adore and to simper”,
    Babs Bush, sheilded Poppy and Chimpster,
    But while Laura went all Stepford
    No Ros’lind, no, nor Bet’ Ford
    Michelle goes with Bangs, never whimper.
