So finances deplete while you watch
as you tighten your belt one more notch.
Your investments still grow
but inflation will show
Bidenomics has you by the crotch.

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy



Kindness is a seed sown by the gentlest hand, growing care's flowers.

Well, if Biden had made your crotch itch
and, distracted, veered into a ditch
get an elephant tow
'cause the donkey won't show
It's a good thing the beast had a hitch

Hitched to beasts like the Democrat’s mule
makes you hateful and act like the fool
but conservative folk
think you’re all a big joke
that’s not funny; just petty and cruel.

So you think that you're pretty and cool?
Do you think that I'm some kind of fool?
I'll not comment on that;
keep it under my hat.
I won't be femininity-cruel!

Femininity’s cool if you are
but your y-chromosomes surely mar
that belief. Those two heads
can’t be cured with some meds.
You might try to be RuPaul’s next star.

Being RuPaul's next star ain't for me
Wearing dresses will not set me free
from my struggles within
my internal dust bin...
things once under the rug, house debris

House debris that’s swept under the rug
decomposes. I don’t have to lug
bags of trash to the curb.
I don’t wish to disturb
that new landfill the neighbors have dug.

Since your neighbors have dug a new dump
you've become an old grumblin' grump
with complaints about smells
and the gas it expels...
very much like what comes from your rump.

If what comes from your rump is too much,
whether gas, solid, liquid or such;
it might be that you eat
the wrong food as a treat.
Gluttony is a sin and a crutch!

If in gluttony you eat your crutch
you had best search around in your hutch
for food to digest;
you'll find that it's best
not to eat metal, wood, dirt and such!

Eating things like wood, metal and dirt
is an act with which I wouldn’t flirt
for they’re all hard to chew
even placed in a stew
and their exit from bowels… Oh the hurt!

Yes it's best to treat gently your bowels
if your life has the wisdom of owls
If you just give a hoot
then the subject is moot
You should really stop chewing on dowels

Chew on dowels? That’s the termite’s domain.
I eschew what they chew and refrain
from indulging in wood
though the fiber is good
but divesting of such is a strain.

If you strain to get into your vest
it is exercise I might suggest
might well lessen your fat
and perhaps it is that
would cause eating less starch, which is best!

If less starch when you’re eating’s the best
that leaves veggies and meat as the rest
of your choices for food.
I don’t wish to be rude
but burgers without buns I detest.

If you sit on your buns and scarf burgers
you'd better cut down on your sugars
'cause you will get fat
and rat-a-tat-tat
your once-runny nose will have boogers!

Runny noses get boogers I’m told.
The result of the too common cold!
They don’t help with a cure;
if they did, I am sure
that their value would be more than gold.

Having value is more than a goal
for the once-fast red mare and her foal
for the foal would soon race
at a very fast pace
and would end up in front at the pole.
