Three verses to welcome 2017
By the Darn-Poor Rhymer
Economy is to ecology
As astronomy is to astrology.
Left is theft, and right is might, and never the twain should meet;
Yet both agree that we should suffer cameras on the street.
And both desire to tax us hard, and shrivel us with fright;
My friend, tell me the difference between the left and right.
When politics has met its doom,
Ten billion human beings will bloom.
