A parody poem
By JTR Franklin
I do not like Obamacare I said. I already have free government healthcare, said I Ted.
I Ted will stand, preen, and bluster. I will jabber and blabber in this filibuster.
Dad would make green eggs for Ted in a synch. I Ted thought himself Sam, but is really the Grinch.
I Ted will tell you that I think and care for you all. But I’m unable to do so, cause my brain and heart are two sizes too small.
I Ted loves those yummy White Castle burgers. I Ted will purchase them from those underpaid uninsured fast-food workers.
I Ted tell citizens I only wear suits that are cheap. However, the Koch brothers bought some expensive clothes for my wife and I to keep.
I Ted thought New Jersey didn’t need aid, even as the flood water rose higher. I Ted begged for aid in Texas after an explosion of fertilizer.
I Ted question Presedent Obama as a true American citizen. I Ted Texas Senator am a natural born Canadian.
Please don’t call I Ted a canuck. I Ted am an all-American crook.
I Ted live well, while most Americans are struggling. I Ted will call them lazy, while I am paid for doing nothing.
I Ted and republicans cause shutdowns when we complain and pout. We laugh and ponder why none votes us out.
I don’t want this Obamacare, said Ted. I don’t mind if no one else has healthcare, said I Ted.
