Limericks by Bob Aldrich

Millennials have shown in each poll
It’s socialism that they extol.
Its ‘benefits’ they’ll reap
While dense bureaucrats keep
Our economy under control.

 


Disenchantment and disillusion
Cause the voters to see collusion.
Mega-donors pull strings.
Congress ratifies things
With middle class viewpoint exclusion.

 


After facing financial demise
Puerto Rico’s new deal’s a surprise.
In our time of grid lock
A bipartisan shock
An Obama/Ryan compromise.
