As if the first one wasn't bad enough



And now, the news!

Current Events Sonnet #2 in D Minor

The government in Burma's good with guns,
With helping after cyclones, not so much,
Poor Gates finds Yahoo doesn't want his funds;
Perhaps some other friends will be in touch.
The Dragon and the Lama had a talk
We're hoping they will end up BFF -
We also think new superheroes rock;
The deadline came and went for blaming Jeff.
The President is at a record nadir
And Nader isn't doing very hot;
While Clinton wants to make Iran a crater,
McCain is pretty pleased with what he's got.
Now Indiana has the nation's focus
They're ready for their stunning non-event;
Another movie's armed with hocus-pocus -
Perhaps that's where the rebates will be spent.
And good ol' Ronnie's looking to be king
That is, um, if you like that sort of thing.

Be sure to tune in again tomorrow, when someone will get slapped with a fish!

I dunno. I kind of like it!

It sort of reminds me of a train wreck.

Hey Burns/Buckley, you're really good at these news/poetry concoctions. You need to get this stuff on the nightly news.

Thanks, "I want Burned"! There'll be a new one every Monday, so stay tuned!
