Treasure Island

Joe Rosochacki


31 Flavors Plus One


Baskin Robbins didn’t do it,
Starbuck’s didn’t do it,
But Ben (Cohen) and Jerry (Greenfield) did it on a whim
They endorsed Barack Obama and they made a flavor for him.

It’s not Rocky Road,
or Moose Tracks,
It’s not Himrod Hillary Heaven,
or Coffee Coated Clinton bites,
It should taste good to their fellow Democrats.

It’s Cherries for Change,
“If life is a bowl of cherries, what am I doing in the pits? ” says Hillary.
Plagiarizing Erma Bombeck, not relationship Bombeck Obama.
Two fine Jewish businessmen are endorsing an Arabic name presidential candidate,
They’ve equipped two SUVs with campaign slogans called ObamaMobiles,
Two retrofitted Honda Elements,
Not an Explorer, Durango, or even an H-2,
What a way to win over the UAW.
Only in America.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
