I just saw that “Fifty Shades of Grey”

I just saw that “Fifty Shades of Grey”.
A surprising film, I must say.
            I thought it might be
            About early TV
When black and white shows ruled the day.

I hear the East Coast has been cursed

I hear the East Coast has been cursed
With snow storms they’re calling “The Worst”.
            Their Wintertime blues
            Are all over the news
Forgetting the Midwest had them first.

The late night pantheon is changing

The late night pantheon is changing
Requiring some rearranging.
            Dave, Craig, and now Jon
            All suddenly gone?
Can the Jimmies pump us the engaging?

There once was a fellow named Brian,

There once was a fellow named Brian,
A TV news anchor caught lyin’.
            He claimed war heroism.
Folks started to quiz him.
And now he may say some good-byin’.

If a snowstorm should blanket your town

If a snowstorm should blanket your town
Just relax, stay inside, hunker down
            Until the storm’s crested.
The street’s are congested
With all those news trucks driving roun’.

From working stiffs to billionaires,

From working stiffs to billionaires,
There is no time that causes more swears
            Than the U. S. tax season.
            The primary reason?
THE IRS thinks our stuff is THEIRS.

When dealing with strife ‘tween the races

When dealing with strife ‘tween the races,
It’s worthwhile to try trading places.
            Would the United Tribes
            Enjoy slurs,  jokes and gibes
About the Washington Palefaces.

In a game filled with violent brawls

In a game filled with violent brawls
Played in searing heat and blinding squalls,
            Pro football, they say,
            Played the Patriot way,
Is done so with much smaller balls.

After terrorists struck in Paris,

After terrorists struck in Paris,
Les hommes asked themselves, “Where is
            The American support?”
            Obama came up short.
He might as well have been on Polaris.

There once was a bassist named Bruce

There once was a bassist named Bruce
Who played like his fingers were loose.
            They flew ‘cross the frets
            Weaving blue-tinted nets
That no one else could reproduce.

Rest in Peace, Jack Bruce

There once was a girl with no name

There once was a girl with no name
Who never knew fortune or fame.
            She was not allowed
            To learn how to be proud.
Her femaleness just brought her shame.

Celebrate Blog Action Day.  Bloggers across the globe are writing and talking about “Inequality” today.  Please join the discussion and do some small thing to advance equality today.

There once was a fellow named Jordan

There once was a fellow named Jordan
Who wanted, but could not afford one
            Of those new iPhones
            (Or one of its clones)
That he knew his retailer hoardin’.

There once was a fellow named Prince

There once was a fellow named Prince.
At the Super Bowl, he made some folks wince.
            But he played in the rain
            Of a purplish strain,
And there ain’t been a better show since.

There once was a Burger named King

There once was a Burger named King
Who got a caught in a tax-dodging thing.
            The sent his treasury forth
            To a neighbor up North
Who agreed to tax less of his bling.

Obama wore a light colored suit

Obama wore a light colored suit
Without his crimson tie, to boot.
            Hear the GOP shout,
            “Oh, my God.  Throw him out.”
From a yacht wearing a sailor suit.
