Words for Thought

A bunch of busy bodies
Have been making much ado
Wondering if Egypt has been
Going through a coup

Setting stunning standards
For deceit and obfuscations
The folks at State determined
Not to make determinations

Auditing the briefing then
The take-away is this
A coup is not a coup
The way a kiss is just a kiss

Of course upon reflection
I now understand completely
A rose is not a rose
And called a fish would smell as sweetly

Folks who study rhetoric
Have rarely seen the same
Backwards bending over
Since Cuomo spoke at Notre Dame

He said to run for office
In the states or jurisdictions
Every Catholic candidate
Should give up their convictions

If you're without convictions, sir
Then pray, consider silence
Or you’ll be saying terrorists
Are plotting workplace violence

Is zeal for wealth and power
So intense and so compelling
They can't show us the poke
Or pig within that they'll be selling?

I don’t ask much of politics
But beg for one thing mainly
Is there a politician who
For once can say things plainly?
