Tasty Pies

Tasty Pies

 

What does Ma Richards bake in tasty pies?
Only the most elite ingredients.
Here her advantage, pie fans, is immense.
Into her pies go little fetal eyes
And crunchy femurs of prenatal size
And brains and spines and hearts and livers. Hence
The flavor, so distinctive and intense!
On the top, there’s a glaze of feeble lies.
Perhaps you disapprove. Hey, don’t complain!
For human tissues have known far worse fates.
This way, some part of them will yet remain
Profitable when sold at steady rates.
In People magazine, and not in vain,
A whole admiring culture celebrates.

Hey, Katie Couric, serious Cecile
has something that she really needs to say!
Danger impends, a weight that you can feel
in the unhappy air on this dark day.
Our dearest rights are threatened in a way
that we who cherish them have never seen.
The vilest views are clearly on display.
The meetings of our enemies convene.
Today indeed the whir of our machine
is audible, and business moves ahead.
But keep in mind: the GOP is mean!
The future is alive with nameless dread!
And candidates with cold, unfeeling hearts
may close the factory of baby parts!
