Limericks by Bob Aldrich

As the big spending candidates climb
Their attack ads use more grime and slime,
But stopped advertising
Won’t end demonizing
Is like stopping your watch to save time.
Wal-Mart stores continue to grow.
Cost controls and strict rules make it so.
When wage law conformance
Shrinks fiscal performance,
Stores are closed and employees let go.

We’ve a new animal in the ‘hood.
It’s a grey shape that’s up to no good.
In its blending grey coat
It’s the wily coyote
Who would catch all our pets, if he could.
