Resurrecting Objecting


The Senate is a forum
That functions with a quorum –
And sometimes with decorum.

Some find as inconvenient
Its code of broad agreement
To consummate achievement.

But should a resolution
Ignore the Constitution,
Rand Paul has one solution:

That Southern stubborn mule
Will find an arcane rule,
And use it as a tool.

Which leads the more dramatic
To verbalize emphatic,
And worse – undiplomatic.

The Senator’s objection
Has bought him disaffection,
And maybe reelection.

For in the current hour,
The one who holds the power
Is he who will not cower.

  1. How I wish it were Rand Paul running for the presidency instead of his father.
