If you were a dog, would you rather be... (political joke)

If you were a dog, would you rather be:

a) riding in a pet carrier with Romney on vacation, or

b) served as the main course on the Obama dining table in Kenya? **

Liberal Democrats need not reply. We're all well aware they'll gladly and figuratively throw themselves on their sword for ol' Hussein.

    Reminds me of a poem. Not sure why, but....

    If I were a dog, and you were a flower, I'd lift up my leg and give you a shower.

    And that reminds me of the very touching and smart as a whip poem, "Evolution", that begins "When you were a tadpole and I was a fish..."

    Sounds strange but it's pretty keen. Was written I think about the turn of the century by a NY sports and general reporter, a poem to his wife-to-be. And they were together till his death many years later, and in grief, she soon took her own life.

    Anyway, it's odd to think that a poem about evolution and the history of life on earth could become a romantic poem, but it's actually very lovely as well as being scientifically accurate and clever. You can find the poem on Utube and elsewhere.

    "Evolution" begins:

    When you were a tadpole and I was a fish
    In the Paleozoic time,
    And side by side on the ebbing tide
    We sprawled through the ooze and slime,
    Or skittered with many a caudal flip
    Through the depths of the Cambrian fen,
    My heart was rife with the joy of life,
    For I loved you even then.

    Being a canine, I know quite well which one's would get my vote (if I were not a foreigner) and which one's leg I will use as if it were a fire hydrant...

    Lonewolf here in the good ole USA being a foreigner doesn't stop you from voting just come on over and join in just like the rest of them folks that are doing it.

    My wife was talking to some people a couple days ago that admitted that they are here illegally and told her that they will be voting., she asked them how and they said "they tell us where to go and vote".

    Well, first, I don't know what poetry cpj considers good. Second, the poem "Evolution" is simply a bit of doggerel that came to mind as we swapped messages. I don't think it's a great poem by any way. Great is stuff by Blake or TS Eliot. :driving::love:

    So, the choices are death or imprisoned lap dog?

    Great is a highly subjective term in relation to poetry, great is whatever you really fancy.

    Putting poochy in a carrier is not imprisonment anymore than putting a child in a special car seat, it is to protect your loved ones from harm.

    The question was what would I rather be...not my kids or dogs. ME.

    At least I now have an idea of what republicans think of the average voter. Thanks.

    Thanks Rberglof, but no matter how much I would like to go the the USA, if I cannot do it legally, I would not do it.

    There was a young fellow named Chris,
    Found a bucket of aged ambergris,
    And he said, with a grin,
    I'll dump cast bullets in,
    And have greasy cast bullet bliss.

    Yes, or one of those immortal classics such as, "Whose that knocking at my door, ask the fair young maiden........ .I'm Barnacle Bill the Sailor... or well you get the idea.

    Actually, the dog (and snake) eating was done with the stepfather in Indonesia. All the philandering Kenyan did was be a sperm donor for a drugged-out hippie tramp, and then he went back home to his wife (or wives) in Africa!

    Why not, in Chicago the dead have been voting for decades.

    Yes, they are poems. Limericks are a TYPE of poem. Like a sonnet, haiku, etc.

    So there.

    Correctimundo (to quote Latin, er, pig Latin?)

    Generally, "poetry" per se is meant to be serious while "verse" can include limericks, doggerel, stuff like Casey at the Bat, etc. Perfectly acceptable to like all of it, serious and humorous.

    Which is why I enjoy doggerel like "Evolution" and also serious stuff like Eliot's "Wasteland" (April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land) or "Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock" (I have measured out my life with coffee spoons). And Blake, or Yeats:

    "What rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches toward Bethelem to be born..."

    Keen, the way a few words can create great images in the mind. (so does the man from Nantucket)

    Nice try. The idea was *IF* you were a dog. We had no idea you'd take it so literally.... YOU made that comparison, not anybody else.
