Holidays curtailed?
You should be thankful. Just think
You might not gain weight.

Think of all the things
We should be grateful for, like
All the gas we’ve saved.

I have a gadget
It supports me by saying
“When you’re right, you’re right!”

Things we should know but keep forgetting

Do We Have to Love Them?

Don’t you have to love
Politicians? Because they
Always know what’s best

Beware when you hear
A politician who mocks
Someone checking facts

Attack and attack
After all the best defense
Might be offensive

Which is more complex
The clear one or the murky
Or are they the same

Politicians must
Win your vote to reach their goal
Truth is optional

They’ll disappoint you
No one can promise that much
And come through, can they?

Problems abound, so
Our leaders work together …
Yea, like that’ll happen
