Fun With Words Friday!

My 6-year-old nephew knows who all of them are! :)

My friend, Estelle, of Musings on Motherhood and Midlife, is starting a weekly feature on her blog called “Fun With Words Friday.”  She gives us a topic (this week, it’s women and politics, in honor of the debates) and challenges us to write a short poem or limerick on that topic.  You know me.  I can’t say no to a challenge!  So, here are my entries – enjoy!

A Limerick:

There once was a rich man from Bain

Who felt he had no need to ‘splain

Why his payroll wasn’t swimmin’

With binders of women -

He should end up just like McCain.

A Poem:

Politics has proven ways of turning men to boys:

Shows of might and playground fights and who’s got better toys.

I sometimes wish that all their moms could put them in time-out,

That logic ruled and they were schooled in how to speak, not shout.

A moderator in debates can serve this purpose solely.

This week we saw one in the form of smarty Candy Crowely.

She fact-checked Mitt, told both to sit, and showed her muscle flexes.

She made me proud to say out loud, “My chromosomes are X-es!

Have a lovely weekend, y’all!!!  :-D
