Mad Dogs and Politicians—But I Repeat Myself



Encountering a mad dog one day, the cat

inquired of this menace: Republican or Democrat?

The dog’s mouth foamed freely with cash and honey,

and he said: “Who cares? It’s all about the money.”

 –

He then led the cat down a garden path,

all smiles and promises, till he turned in his wrath.

He attacked like the crazed beast he certainly was

and sent the cat flying in a cloud of fuzz.

 –

So, beware politicians you might meet on your walk;

they’ll promise you anything, but it’s just empty talk.

Don’t give them a chance to latch onto what you’ve got,

for the only good mad dog’s the one that’s been shot.
