LePage Inauguration Limericks - and Now, New Poet Laureate

Maine has a new governor from Waterville

Who promised a budget-cut slaughter/kill

The Socialists will SCREAM;

"YOU'RE KILLING OUR DREAM!"

And if they don't freak out then some SQUATTER will.

Our new governor

Our new governor LePage,
Smarter than an old sage.
Republicans will shout,
Democrats will pout,
and the bureaucrats will have fits of rage!

There once was a Governor named LePage

Whose conservative message is now all the rage,

As he readies for the Ax

For the budget to attack,

He’ll look to his child for the way.

Excellent stuff, gentlemen.

Excellent stuff, gentlemen. Now, which of you will be journeying to the POETRY PROTEST in Portland's Longfellow Square today, and reading your little ditty?

(For those who don't know, the Maine Writer's Alliance is staging a read-in today, to protest the lack of poetry-reading at LePage's inauguration).

Paul LePage was not from Nantucket,
But he carries to office a bucket,
Not filled with fish,
but with everymans wish,
the state won't spy our fruit and just pluck it.

The Tea Partiers got what they asked for,
Kicked Dem ass's right out the State House door;
LePage’s Solution:
Pocket Constitution-
An artifact that Progressives abhor.

Governor LePage,

Governor LePage, congratulations!
We hope you enjoy the celebrations.
Please save Maine’s mountain ridgelines
From industrial turbines
And their costly power generation!

Republicans will extinguish their flame.
However, Libertarians,
Being quite contrarians
Only expect more of the same.

The Liberal's Lament

Oh, why does Maine need such a governor!?
Mother nature will have nobody lovin' her.
Vernal pools feel no mercy,
He'll end L. U. R. C.!
Lady Greed will have no one to govern her!

Imagine the rampant construction,
Out of staters will pour all their bucks in!
They'll kill all the trees,
render homless the bees!
Oh, the row LePage has all his ducks in!

We won't have the access we oughta,
The S. O. B. hired his daughter,
to guard the front door,
and give Repub's the floor.
For forty one grand he just bought her!

Me, too, Fred. I am here at the Homestead, doing care/feeding behavior on the forum, which is just as important, at least to me. After all, we have to think AMG helped in the effort to elect LePage, at least a little bit.
:)

I was so danged happy to see the tv broadcast, watch him step onto the stage, and take that oath of office. What a day.

LePage's voice rings forth

LePage's voice rings forth like a bell
sending liberals hiding in shells
Just like Christie
he makes them all pissy
by telling them all "Go to Hell!"

Many events and people led us to this great day, Naran. Not the least of which was the appearance of "Betsy Ross" and Mary Adams at many gatherings of, what would be, future Tea Party people.

Keep up the great work, Betsy!

Personally I found it more challenging under the King administration...

there once was a gov named Angus
who luved to ride on the kangamangus
through the woods he would go
on his bike to and fro
shouting democrats and republicans will hang us!

Fred - thank you for the kind words. Those Tea Party days with Mary Adams seem like the distant past. It's taken a LONGGGGG time to get here, has it not? But --- victory in the end is sweet, indeed!

A reference to my favorite part of Governor LePage's speech:

Maine now has a governor named Paul
Who dared to go to the wall
And claim profit is good
Without it there would
Be no non-profit sector at all.

At the Resouces Council of Maine the windows are all draped in black.
Oh woe is me! Cried Brownie, they are going to take the State of Maine Back!
Quick! Raise money! Call all our friends in their Prius's and BMWs to send a check!
Why that evil Lepage will put a refinery and a nuke plant on every shore. He will make our quality of place a wreck!
But the people of Maine have spoken. They have spoken loud and clear.
It's the people of Maine who will come first from now on. Moaned Brownie: "I guess I'd better get outta here!!"

Haiku is new to me, though I've heard tell of it.

I'll try.

Democrats will
find themselves tending
minorities priorities.

Feeble attempt. I just noticed that I didn't make the last word of the first line relate to the rhyming last line. This isn't nearly as easy as composing a limerick.

Angry poets scold Belfast councilor

BELFAST, Maine — The poets were peeved and not afraid to use plenty of descriptive language to show it.

A week of simmering controversy over the selection of Belfast’s next poet laureate came to a boil at Tuesday night’s regular City Council meeting, with one person accusing Councilor Michael Hurley of going “rogue” and others calling for his censure.

Reader comment from the site linked above:

In little Belfast they're all up in a dander,
A former mayor has descended to slander!
The Town Poet quits in a huff,
Says she's had quite enough
Of Councilor Hurley's candor.
