American Wriggle


Rand Paul opens
a new can of worms.

The worms wriggle
around in the can,
unaware they're about
to become fish-bait.

"That's it! " he tells them,
"I approve of wriggle!
Fish approve of wriggle.
Everybody approves wriggle.
It's The American Way! "

Tea Partiers cheer, wriggling
like blind American worms.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
