Limerick: The Senator

“Poverty” Illustration by Paul Lachine

There once was a young senator
who never cared about the poor.
This opinion, he stressed,
’til his father confessed
food stamps had been their life-savior.

  1. Great limerick! I appreciate how quickly you paint a picture and make a point, using a new medium for this blog. Though I’m not sure replacing “governor” with “senator” qualifies as being thinly veiled.
