Trapped Inside the Scum Line
[Portage, September 5, 2009]

Just when we think public discourse is low
As it can go, here comes health’s imbroglio,
The strangest damn debate I ever saw
One side led by Obamacrats’ big brains
(with not the sense to come in from the rain)
the other  side by one time junkie Rush Limbaugh
(his only art, dealing public pain)
When Obama wants to talk to school kids
To pick their brains, blunt burbolt Limbaugh
Labels him Saddam Hussein.
Once there was a loyal opposition
Conducting intelligent debate,
Now it’s us again them, spewing out hate.
While impossible to speculate dates
It’s pretty clear we’ll collectively share
Less-than-desirable terminal fates.
Our elected pols need to pony up
Unlike partisans past, and rule with hearts
To form ideas of substance, rather
Than ill-contrived headline-catching farts.
We tread water inside a foul scum line
Where ideas of merit look like shit,
Few of us ever objecting to this.
