Net Neutrality

When you own the pipes
You can choose what they dispense
Worked out fine for Flint

All The Time In The World

It cannot be the case that we’re
Already in December, here.
That’s just not possible. I mean,
It’s barely twenty-seventeen!
I know it’s not that late, because
My New Year’s Resolution was
To get my prep done in advance
And so avoid the frantic dance
Of shopping/wrapping Christmas Eve
That’s been my drill, and I believe
That this year I’ll succeed. You scoff,
But trust me, I can pull this off.
I’m going to rock this Christmas scene!
I’ll start right after Halloween.

No Moore!

Rarely have I been
So relieved to be so wrong
Thank you, Big Red X

Does Your Conscience Bother You? (Tell The Truth)

The past is past! Well, through tonight.
Tomorrow, everything that’s right
With Alabama could be hidden,
Buried by what Roy Moore did, and
Then, as Skynyrd wouldn’t have said,
What should be good’s now mostly dead.
Plane crash jokes are in poor taste
But moral standing’s been erased
If, when the final vote’s been cast,
Your senator’s a pederast.
I’ll apologize like that
If you elect the Democrat
Or write in someone short of Satan,
Which could happen…
I’m not waitin’.

The Story So Far

History teaches
Bad things end; survivors then
Have the next last laugh

Rah-Rah Ritardando

Social sites can be a blessing
Except when they get to messing
With Sportspiele you’ve recorded
Going dark means spoilers thwarted
Time out now for college pride
I’ll see you on the other side
