Occasional light verse, mostly political. If you're looking for a certain cold medicine, try here. But we can put you to sleep cheaper.

nucular option

The leaders who control the Senate,
Like a thousand-pound gorilla,
Don't abide by any tenet
Which could curb them; no scintilla
Of regret they'll show, no smidgen,
When judicial filibuster
(Thousand-pound-gorilla buster)
Goes the way of the Passenger Pigeon.

This move would be extremely clever
For those who plan to rule forever.
But will they long for lost tradition
Next time they're the opposition?

If overreaching strains your wrist,
Go complain to Dr. Frist.
