Stand with Pete

Stand with Pete

 
“Stand with Buttigieg! He offers hope—
And with challenges clearly can cope!
Pete is really good news!”
Stand with Pete if you choose—
But do not stoop to pick up the soap!

 
–Tom Riley

 

 

Failure and Frustration

Failure and Frustration

 
Wail and whine – for the country is lost!
On mad seas is the ship of state tossed!
We recoil in disgust.
Our impeachment went bust!
The electorate will not be bossed!

 
–Tom Riley

Other Team

The Other Team

 

Rick Wilson’s playing for the other team.
(I am not simply talking politics.)
Change over time can sometimes seem extreme.
Rick Wilson’s playing for the other team.
The thought of Biden naked makes him cream.
He longs to fondle big progressive dicks.
Rick Wilson’s playing for the other team.
(I am not simply talking politics.)

Opinion Leaders

Opinion Leaders

 

George and Rick on the air are opining—
And are sure their opinions are shining
Really bright. You should care!
That’s when they’re on the air.
When they’re not, they are off 69-ing.

 

–Tom Riley

Squat Rick and the Moment of Hilarity

Squat Rick and the Moment of Hilarity

 

Squat Rick laughs – and he’s laughing at you
Just as media Democrats do.
Rick’s now leftist – and woke.
He sees you as a joke.
In November, let that be your cue.

Hope Returns

Hope Returns

 

Though Rick Wilson and other lame pricks
Who appear not to care much for chicks
Have engaged in derision,
I feel no indecision:
Me, I still have a thing for Hope Hicks.

 

–Tom Riley

In the Unpredictable Café

In the Unpredictable Café

 

 

I rejoiced when

they served me a steaming

cup of chaos.

That’s the Life

That’s the Life

 

 

Sardines for breakfast, with a simple wine:

that is the life — or, anyhow, it’s mine.

Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

 

“You will star in a tragedy, lad!”
“Me, a star? I’m surprised – and, well, glad!
In the role you suggest,
I’ll indeed do my best!”
“Yes, we know – but then things will go bad.”

 

–Tom Riley

Latter-Day Carmilla

Latter-Day Carmilla

 

 

(for Zahir Al Daoud)

 

 

Ernessa, you’re a latter-day Carmilla.

I long for you, but you choose only girls

Like Lucy.  I’m as angry as Godzilla,

Ernessa:  you’re a latter-day Carmilla!

To such as me you grant not one scintilla

Of sweet predation.  Swine don’t earn your pearls,

Ernessa.  You’re a latter-day Carmilla:

I long for you, but you choose only girls!

 

 

–Tom Riley
