Factoids and truthiness and truthiness and factoids
Give me a royal pain not unlike hemorrhoids
Rumors most vicious and slander that stings
These are some of my least favorite things

Biased reporting and wisdom (conventional),
Rancid old racists whose harm seems intentional
Loud Bible-thumpers, gang-bangers who sing
These are some more of my least favírite things

When the crap flies, is triumphant,
Thatís when I feel sad;
I consider the way that our culture is going
And try not to
† † † † go
† † † † † † quite
† † † † mad!

Thespians who donít know squat about history
Get quoted widely, though why is a mystery
Singer/songwriters and frontmen for bands
Spout off on subjects they ill understand

Media darlings all full of celebrity
Passing as persons with ties to integrity
Fill up the airwaves with pernicious jive
(Itís hard to imagine their brains are alive)
When my gag reflex gets tickled
I no longer look,
I just turn off my radio and my TV
Then lose myself in a
† † † † † † darn
† † † † † † † † good
† † † † † † book!

Like Hugo and Austin and Shakespeare and Dicken's,
Poetry, novels and other great pickin's...
Curl up in bed with a baggie of nuts...
socks on your toes and a good steaming mug.....
And when your halfway
through the story
and you have to quit,
it's nice to remember that books aren't t.v....
and you can returnnnnnnnnn TO IT!!!!

Gotta love your write, Boots. (But I'm no politician... I just play one on t.v.) --Charlie
