Prayer for Our Fallen Warriors

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May their souls and the souls of all the departed,
Through the Mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

The Paper Chase

 
The socialist caucus
Now running Caracas
Is on the hot seat in the polls.
The national issue?
A shortage of tissue
That common folk purchase in rolls.
 
The problem is vivid.
The public is livid,
As price controls wipe out supply.
Now people are queuing
In hopes of accruing
A super absorbent two-ply.

Catastrophic Coverage

 
My wife revealed just yesterday
Proposals much like mine,
Had been by her received from men
Who ordered better wine.
 
And not in wine alone was I
Below the standard mean,
But I was wanting in my choice
Of bistro and cuisine.
 
My raiment had not measured up,
My tie was short of chic,
And further, to my lasting shame,
My prosody was weak.
