In a column last week, Charles Krauthammer echoed right wingers’ tiresome, old complaints that President Obama had removed a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House, no doubt a reflection of his Kenyan sensibilities. But, as this post shows, Winnie’s bust is still on prominent display at the White House.
Churchill’s bust’s been put away
At least that’s what right wingers say
I don’t know how this rumor grew
But I’m afraid it isn’t true;
Churchill’s head’s still on display
About nothing there’s been much ado.
The poet William Stafford set himself the task of writing a poem a day. When someone asked him what he would do when his poem-of-the-day wasn't very good, he replied "I simply lower my standards." In order to increase output, the bar here is set at a low level - the point of this is to have some fun with current events and politics. I welcome contributions and comments. Now you can also follow Doggerelo on Twitter (@doggerelo). Because of continuing medical problems, I'm no longer able to post a poem-a-day. I'll continue to post poems, but at a reduced frequency, so please stay tuned.
