Will Warren is back at with two new gems on Unremitting Verse. The first, titled Action Men, notes the celebration regarding the return of masculinity:
Was there really a time when the prevalent clime
Shied from maleness in most of its facets?
When the boldest of lads were suspected as cads,
Were considered as plagues and not assets?
The second offering looks at Campaign Finance Reform:
When Congress gives evil “soft money” the ax,
Political money will flow more to PACs.
Reformers of old said that PACs were all bad,
So why will they now make them prosper like mad?
A decade ago, “PACs” meant businesses big;
“Soft money” is now the main corporate gig.
It seems that the point isn’t softness or PAC,
But making big businesses sit in the back.
To reformers, “corruption” just means that they see
Some political acts with which they disagree.
Go read them both.
