            "What, me worry?  I'm saved."

Here's my New Year's OpEdNews gift, a light jingle for those normally put off by reason in rhyme.  Try it, you might like it.

Should old acquaintance be forgot,

And never brought to mind? 

- Advertisement -

Should this self-adoring crackpot,

Not by satire be enshrined?


We've fallen hard, to grisly bottom,

Underneath Perry, Bachmann, Cain --

Halfwit hayseeds spewing hokum --

Now worse -- a cynical pimp urbane.


Yes, next to Romney, stilted, wary,  

Newt's a churning "idea machine;"

Playing bombastic clown contrary,

He taints "debate" with gab obscene.


Newt dismisses his crimes in arrears,

Touts the "historian," Tiffany-rich;

Yet reprisal for his career of smears

Explodes as victims openly snitch.


Newt dumped both used-up wives, 

Twin "family values" disgrace; 

Yet full absolution he contrives,

Self-pardoned by self-appointed grace.


Driving this facile self-deception

Conversion to the Roman church:

What better feeds self-genuflection

Than "St. Newt," risen, un-besmirched?


In his mind a legend, past and present,

Wielding God's infallible sword,

Newt's hubris locks on transcendence

Just fit his throne near the Lord.


 Join his holier-than-thou campaign,

The sinner with self-expiated sin,

Redemption past the material plane,

In case Jesus needs a stand-in twin.
