Back during the Monica Lewinski thing, I wrote this little piece of advice to then-president Bill Clinton. He didn't follow my advice, but then, he never read the poem either, so I guess I can't blame him.
March 4, 2007: Wow. It's a few years later, and we have George W. Bush, Iraq, and so on. I would settle for a little scandal in the closets over what is happening now.
December 10, 2011: Just gets better and better. Barack Obama is president.
Ode to Billy Clinton
Listen, Billy. Listen! Really!
I'll tell you like we're pals.
You're the head, so don't be led.
Avoid the charming gals.
Bill, it's nifty, tho' over fifty,
You're as good as any man...
Or a satyr, doesn't matter,
You've proven that you can.
So, Bill, take hold, be brave and bold,
Control those wild emotions.
You are the Prez! That's what it says.
So modify your notions.
You are an adult, so don't insult
Your position...or this voter!
You've won the race. Few even place!
It's time to cut your motor.
Be content as president
To rest and take a breather.
Most men cannot touch what you've got.
...Most women shouldn't either.
