Alternative Voicing: Fox News Stops By The Woods On A Snowy Evening

Rating: 5.0

Whose woods these are, I think I know
A Liberal from the village though,
A welfare cheat without a job
Too lazy to come and watch the snow.

Good thing there is no fag or queer
To press their “gay agenda” near
Right between the woods and frozen lake
They’d be good for target practice here.

My Hummer idles with nary a shake.
Minorities here would be some mistake.
The only sound would be as I sweep
The poor out of town, oh let them eat cake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
A place where terrorists could creep,
Using trees for cover, on me they’d leap
So many trees to fell before I sleep.
So many trees to fell before I sleep.

Funny and sharp! Although Republicans like things all white, they are ignoring the oncoming global warming.. What a quandry they'll be in then... -chuck

I can just about feel the earth shake with Robert's laughter, as once again you delightfully take aim at such a deserving target, o such sweet slaughter! phillip

An interesting, clever and funny write; loved the Robert Frost 'tribute'; great job.

What an excellent summary of the message spread by those blood-sucking flim-flam artists at Fox News. This has made my day.

i don't throw this word around lightly, but this is BRILLIANT. i think you have effectively cornered the market on satirical poetry, PoHo. what you did to Frost here is like turning a Van Eyck painting into a Rockwell. Jake

I hadnt taken time to read this, PH...and found it witty, sharp, and well-written. This should be sent somewhere for publication...there ought to be a market somewhere. Now I need to go heal my 'bite wounds' and come back for more. :) Raynette

I can't believe I haven't read this before now. What a corker! You've taken one of my favourite poems and used it to have a very witty go at one of my least favourite things - 10,10, dammit,10! Hugs Anna xxx PS How many republicans does it take to change a lightbulb? None. There is nothing wrong with the lightbulb and any suggestions to the contrary are part of an evil smear campaign by the liberal media. This lighbulb has worked admirably and has served its purpose well. Why do you hate freedom?
