SEE I IS GOT CULTURE
Now, I don't want you to get the wrong impression of me. Generally, I violently oppose all things people consider "cultured." I don't like foreign films, paintings, sculptures, fiction of most sorts, and especially poetry. But every once in a while there is a worthy exception to these usually steadfast rules. Joy Skilmer, the pen name of old Reagan hand Lyn Nofziger (one of the few people I consider a hero, for what it's worth), offers this:
And girl drowner, who would have thunk
He, of all people, has the gall
to throw the word “neanderthal.”
At those who think our laws should be
He says such folks are not the sort
To name to any fed’ral court
“Neanderthals!” Ted doth assert,
Who drag their knuckles in the dirt,
Uncouth and worse, the kind who say
The constitution is the way.
But Ted Left-winger Kennedy
Is determined that this won’t be.
Conservatives that George Bush names
Ted and his friends shoot down in flames.
With smears and lies they do their work
Just like they did on old Bob Bork.
Teddy Kennedy, rounder, drunk,
And girl drowner--youse is a skunk.
