My Family Needs Me (Limerick and Video)

Monday, November 26th, 2007

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.
