My son brought home a puppy, he dragged it through the gate; before I could say, 'It might bite,' my son found out, too Late. Ponder, please, and Turn your heart to Jesus.
D C News

Washington, the rock of ages,

Shaking and Quaking their fare;

Evacuated White house of Pages,

Without going anywhere.

An E Q, strength of 5 point 6,

Did make the eyeballs flap;

Fear and laughter pick-up sticks,

Let Satan take the Rap.

The Congressmen were out of town,

The quaking had no foe;

The shaking rattled all to frown,

Reaction wasn't slow.

News picture said a lawn chair,

Fell completely on its side;

Bent and damaged grass fare;

News worthy, Editor cried:

'Perhaps we've earned disaster care,

With extra on the side;

We have to stabilize that chair,

So constituents don't think we lied.

The folks way-out Nebraska way,

Won't mind paying part of bill;

So long as they can football play,

And have their Saturday thrill.'

A Senator, I believe, is rushing back to town;

In his case, a ton of Pork;

To bolster numbers, so re-election's sound,

They'll quit thinking him a dork.

Offered on the lighter side,

The world has gone insane;

Sadly, this offering ain't no joke,

As Noah cried, 'I's gonna RAIN.'
