There once was a bassist named Bruce

There once was a bassist named Bruce
Who played like his fingers were loose.
            They flew ‘criss 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.

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.

CNN said that jean sales are down

CNN said that jean sales are down;
That gals wear yoga pants around town
            Women have gone en masse
            From squeezing their ass-
Ets into pants that too tightly surround.

There once was a man from D.C.

There once was a man from D.C.
Who said this on network TV.
            “Am I a Rep or Dem?
            I’m neither of them.
I came to get thing done, you see.”

The city of Lincoln hosts a college.

The city of Lincoln hosts a college.
Amid the trucks with their corn cob haulage.
            Its alumni is proud
            And will shout out loud,
“Nebraska!  Where the ‘N’ stands for ‘Nowledge’.”

I ask of each son and each daughter

I ask of each son and each daughter
Take a message to those who would slaughter
            Our rivers and lakes
            For pure profits’ sakes.
Tell them, “Keep your hands off our water!”

The Ohio elected officials

The Ohio elected officials
Who did not listen to the whistles
            About the impending doom
            Of the giant algae bloom
Should now be walking about on thistles.

Miss Idaho, who takes no back seat,

Miss Idaho, who take pageant back seat,
In her bathing suit was replete.
            When they said, “What’s that bumb.”
            She said “Insulin pump.
‘Cause the other girls have been so sweet.”

OMG! OMG! Did you hear?

OMG! OMG! Did you hear?
LeBron James is coming back here.*
            The sales of his merch
            Will hit a lofty perch
Since we burned up our old LeBron gear.

Has written a scathing retort.

            While maintaining her couth,
Told some of the Supremes to contort.

If Shakespeare lived in this time and place

If Shakespeare lived in this time and place,
What plays would he write to keep pace?
            Would he present British history,
            Or a “true” murder mystery?
Or Honey Boo Boo meets Nancy Grace?
