  • Their Precious Punctuation *

    This poem is my response to what's going on in our govt. and the assault on our President .I pray their attempt to remove him fails miserably .I heard someone say that if anything he'd have an asterisk by his name for having been impeached in the House . Unfair as that may be , what's done is done. In no way shape or form will that keep me from supporting the President .I am hesitant posting this because I don't want to jinx anything. However I have faith , besides someone has to punch this punctuation permanently because when it comes around sometimes it's a pest Enjoy

    Their Precious Punctuation * ( c ) Glen MItton 2019

    May I direct your attention
    To this tiny little star
    This promoted denote
    Is not with planet Mars
    A noted annotation
    It's character in text
    Placed by a congregation
    Conjured up like a hex
    They need it on the record
    As fast as they did try
    Grabbing at the paper
    Before the ink was dry
    I'm sure they helped by blowing
    Being careful not to rip
    The water marks it's showing
    Is spit from their feverish lips
    It won't phase me in the least bit
    If there is an " Asterisk " mark
    It will only fuel me further
    And embolden my embark
    This wont stop me from voting
    For our " Phantom Menace " Grace
    A " wrench " thrown into the works
    An " American Apple Pie " in their face
    This is their badge of honor
    They'll wear it on their lapels
    Replacing the American Flag
    Because they too think it smells
    Imagine at their supper table
    Bragging with stuffed mouths
    I'm glad I will not to see it
    The bits of food coming out
    Wine glasses are being shattered
    Toasting them in haste
    It's oblivious nothing matters
    Including all the waste
    Their precious punctuation
    Their " Hurried Hallmark " quest
    They're like " Gollum " in that movie
    Only they're a " MULTITUDE " of pests
    Any circle of trust needs help
    It's more than just a thing
    You can grab onto it's circumstance
    And become part of the ring
    Interlock your arms in protection
    With a colleague to ward off foes
    We're all guilty of some weak link
    And that's where evil goes
    If you want too look for fairness
    You don't have to go to far
    Read about Roger Maris *
    He hated that little star
    His fan base didn't waver
    " He earned that record clean "
    Ford Frick didn't do him any favors **
    The critics were ugly and mean
    It's blatant in their actions
    Concealment is the hitch
    Drums of celebration are beating
    But there is no Buddy Rich !
    Proper Procedure Protocol
    Who can argue with that ?
    Where on earth are OUR good guys ?
    Wearing ........ you know , " that hat " !
    God forbid any innuendos
    That's an evil mind not me
    Look out when you're " signing ", " okay "
    They'll think it's a " Nazi " three !
    I had too reference another movie
    Because Hollywood is compromised
    The evil uses it's kinetic potential
    Just some more words to be wise
    Like , don't picnic below a boulder
    Or swing to safety from a jungle vine
    I learned that from getting older
    And RESPECTING the elders mind
    Uncle Sam and Auntie Am
    Know this mockery is taboo
    Our exodus from the excellence
    Is worse than a parlor tattoo
    Once it's penned , it's hard to remove
    The evilness has US so entwined
    Even our sworn DEFENDERS can't move
    Next year at the ballot box
    I hope to see his name
    He really needs a breather
    From this treachery that's insane
    He can pick up right where he left off
    Take some time to see the love
    Know that we really DID pray for him
    That he was sent from God above
    It's ironic when I'm typing
    I have to use the "shift "
    Whenever I need to get to it
    How's that for a twist ?
    Anyway , Merry Christmas !
    To all you friendly folks
    Remember WHY we celebrate
    Regardless of this joke
    I hope we get some " justice " news
    And we all get back to business
    Because all this rhyming does amuse
    As God is my witness
    I like myself and I love this Country
    And Donald , is my cup of tea !
    Why bother with anything
    "If you can't crack yourself up like me ! "
    So from now on I'm gonna spell it
    With 2 " S's " because all of this stinks
    I'm going to spell it , A-S-S-T-E-R-I-S-K
    Please tell me what you think

    * Rodger Maris , baseball player played in the major leagues from 1957 to 1968 . He is best known for setting a new major league baseball single-season home run record with 61 home runs , in 1961 . Babe Ruth's record was 60 home runs in 154 games as opposed to 168 the number of games that Maris played in when the league changed it in 1961 . remained unbroken until 1998.
    ** In 1961, baseball's American League expanded its schedule from 154 games to the current 162. As Roger Maris closed in on Babe Ruth’s single-season home run record of 60, commissioner Ford Frick declared that Ruth’s record would stand if not broken by the Yankees’ 154th game and should Maris break the mark or tie Ruth after that, the records would be treated separately.
