Limericks by Bob Aldrich

Can you cure a cold before it grows?
Some vote yes while there are some who oppose.
As that cold multiplies
It might go to the eyes,
But more often it goes to the nose.

___________________________________________________Our ebola grand czar appointee
Is equiped with just a law degree.
Soon, for the Supreme Court,
We’ll be asked to support
A physician as the nominee.

___________________________________________________

As we sail aboard our ship of state,
We’re slowed by a rough hull and dead weight.
No bipartisan trust
Leaves a barnacle crust
And bad laws generate useless freight.
