Philosophy by Limerick – Crucial Choices for Hell

The old or the new Comandante
Dilecto in flagrante
Won’t burst the balloon,
Just play the worn tune:
Vote Virgil or choose a Dante

Philosophy by Limerick – Amber Waves of Grain

Michael R. Taylor, former Monsanto Lobbiest, is the Deputy Commissioner for Foods at the United States Food and Drug Administration(FDA).

Genetically engineered fodder?
Put trust in your bottled water,
While FDA lures you
Monsanto assures you
You won’t get blind staggers and totter.

Philosophy by Limerick – One Heartbeat Away

Venerated equally by rednecks and aristocrats

Caligula, Julius or Nero
Take your pick. He’s an unlikely hero.
Far better E. Gantry
Or phony philantry
Or maybe just bring back old Spiro.

Old Jules

Philosophy by Limerick – The Engineer

Devoted his life to the noise
Of civilization with poise.
Applied science, he called it.
Obstruction?  He mauled it
With money and tinker toys.
