OUR RECENT SENATE STORM... DEC 14TH,2013


OUR RECENT SENATE STORM … DEC 14TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Recently it seems we had a Senate scandal or two a day,
Something about e-mails and no one knows what is or is not okay,
And why or where the money went and who was really involved,
Then they went on Christmas holidays, so everything was solved.


And senators were appointed till they are seventy five,
A full time job and a senate title almost while we are alive,
And all kinds of other goodies that we seldom hear about,
Strange as it may seem; three of those senators were put out.

But binding referendums and DWD are forbidden,
Can’t even be mentioned and are completely hidden,
They never have an election so they are quietly pleased,
They were appointed and no one knows how or why this was achieved.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
