Free Verse Today?!

What a bummer, TagCrowd is down again: "We're re-fluffing the clouds...." Second time in a week. Trying to keep up with Web 2.0 is getting old. Of course, WordCrowd is free and so are we. At least we have Trillin and the verses that are killin'. If this is (fair & balanced) noetry, so be it.

After weeks of acknowledging only that his
“47 percent” remarks were “not elegantly stated,”
Mitt Romney now says that they were “just
completely wrong.”
—News reports

He was, he says, completely wrong;

To care for everyone is vital.

He’s singing now a different song,

And “Etch A Sketch” is that song’s title. Ω

[Calvin Trillin began his career as a writer for Time magazine. Since July 2, 1990, as a columnist at The Nation, Trillin has written his weekly "Deadline Poet" column: humorous poems about current events. Trillin has written considerably more pieces for The Nation than any other single person. A native of Kansas City, MO, Trillin received his BA from Yale College in 1957. He served in the army, and then joined Time.]
