Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Here's another parody of the same poems. I posted it not to long ago on a different thread where the same thing was discussed:
"You are old, Robert Dole," said a charming young lad,
"And by rights you should fade from attention;
"Yet I see you on TV most nights of the week--
"How do you stay so famous? pray mention!"
"In my youth," said the Senator, cracking a grin,
"I thought deep on political virtues;
"But that's dull. Those tax-policy meetings wore thin--
"It's more fun to just make commercials."
"You're old," said the boy," and it seems quite a reach
"To imagine you waxing gymnastic;
"Yet you turned a back somersault there on the beach--
"What led you to motions so drastic?"
"In my youth," said Bob Dole, "I drank nothing but Coke,
"Which rendered my limbs quite inert;
"But now I drink Pepsi, I prance and I joke,
"Play hopscotch, blow bubbles, and flirt."
"You are old, Father Bob, one would scarcely suppose
"That your dong was as potent as ever;
"Yet you have fine erections, as everyone knows--
"What made you so awfully clever?"
"In my youth," said old Robert, "I ran with the girls,
"And exhausted my membrum virile;
"But now, with the help of these versatile pills,
"There's nothing as firm as my willie."
"You are old, Father Robert," the young man said,
"Like Carter, or Ford, or Bush Senior.
"Unlike them, you shill for considerable bread--
"Do you think, sir, that you are a wiener?"
"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said Bob Dole, "you're a regular baiter.
"I've endorsements to do. I've no time for such stuff.
"You want purity? Interview Nader."
