2008 Poem by jerry hughes


2008 a new year.
But is it new?
That feeble minded imbecile
George W. Bush is still here.
As is the locker-room giggling
limp-wristed faggot,
Tony (Tory) Blair.
And the putrid, lingering stench
of John (Winston?) Howard.
So what's new about 2008?
Bugger all...

I was most likely ten in 2008 or younger. I like your flow. I don't quite know exactly what you are talking about.
