Political Verse

Proof Positive
by Dee Newman

Fox-backed GOP candidate Scott Brown
Who has enthusiastically argued
For the use of torture, not some watered-down
Version of a Republican, mind you,

But a real Bible-thumping, gun-toting
Ultra-conservative, who opposes
Choice and stem cell research, when the voting
Is all done and the last precinct closes,

May very well take the seat that has been
Held by Teddy Kennedy since ‘62.
That a right-wing-nut like this could even
Get in shouting-distance in a true-blue

"What in the hell is going on!" –
Democratic Sate like Massachusetts
Is proof positive this nation has gone
Completely and certifiably nuts.
