Late Night Poetry

Here’s a poem which is well worth checking out: The Return of the Liberal.

This says in verse what I’ve often written in posts here: Liberalism as described by Rush Limbaugh and the right wing noise machine is quite different from what liberals actually believe. Following is a portion of the poem, but I recommend reading it in full:

You want what? Another hearing?
Make it quick, I’m short of time.
Just now I’m going crazy
Hanging on to my last dime.

You say you have sound notions
For my paycheck that’s gone flat,
And help for needy elders?
I could maybe vote for that.

You say you’ll lower taxes
For the middle class and poor,
Instead of puffing up the rich
I’m listening, tell me more.
