I usually steer clear of politics, but here is a nonpartisan scorch, inspired by Dr. Seuss and reading the news.
Senators look in the mirror,
And what do you think they see?
To them nothing could be clearer
“The President should be me!
The Senate Intelligence Committee’s
A painful oxymoron
They are occasionally aware,
That there might just be a war on. With that in mind, he puffs his chest,
Like a rooster in a coop

As if they were fish poop.
There’s no need to legislate,
Or even pass a law
When you can all pontificate
And exercise your jaw.
There’s no need to build a school,
IF you can build a bomb
There’s no need to feed or clothe,
A vet, a child, or mom.
Farmers might go bust and fall
From too much or too little rain
But fundraising dinners are a ball!
Let’s build a useless plane!
Make sure you make a video clip,
That shows you brave and strong!
That shows that you can move your lip,
And string some fools along.
And what is better on TV--
And seen throughout the nation,
To get publicity for free
Than to have an investigation?

Investigate every tooth
In your opponent’s mouth!
Or even selling beer
With disregard for reputations
Just cause your base to cheer!
The left investigates the right

Their screaming makes you deaf!
Why care that vets are hungry
Or the economy’s a mess,
When you can make folks angry
About a dude clad in a dress?
A wealthy writes a check
If you don’t tax the rich!
And if you cut still more, Oh heck—
You’ll cash in you son of a—
