Delay Rides Back (on Schiavo)

Grasping desperately for straws,
Tom Delay proposes laws
Intended to divert
Attention from his plight.

The plight that faces Tom is dire;
Grow the calls of ‘liar.’
To beat back this salvo
Tom employs Schiavo.

Schiavo hangs on by a thread
And might today be dead
Delay hurries, eager
Her case to beleaguer

I disapprove of death! States Tom
His principles are steel
His moribund morals
Restored to their laurels.

Schiavo meanwhile, catatonic
unrestorable now.
her moribundity
untouched by punditry.
