Alternative Professions For Politicians - Poem by Kevin Patrick

A surgeon can moonlight as a clown
Just as a commercial air pilot can sing
While soprano player can juggle motherhood
Tandem to performing recreational catering
A teacher can bake, and Lawyers can wait
And chimpanzees are educated in the art of greeting
(Which I've been told they have found know one worth speaking)
But as far as I know a politician has only one alternative profession -


Theater and Larceny

    Hey Kevin, whatever works. In light of the economy, seems that everyone's going to need some kind of a sidekick these days, but not larceny, though. A funny piece. (Report) Reply
