The upside of Truden

Dear Editor:

Well, this little mess should be cleaned up pretty soon

Embarrassment all swept away by the recall broom

Everyone knows, and she says she’ll never resign

But the electorate will get it right this time

Voters with better sense will start a new tune

Recommended Stories For You

Give Republicans credit for providing the moment

For citizens to stop all this political foment

Without that party we’d have no Truden

No chance for that scowl like young John Gruden

So thanks, Colleen, for all the entertainment

You’ve taken your turn, taught us lessons galore

Look what you’ve done, even Fred made a score

Never again will incompetence easily win

Or get so far on a story quite so thin

Oh we know that now, but please no more

Maybe the experience was actually worth the waste

Maybe the politicos can remember the taste

Even hacks can smell this foul scenario

All cook up by who is Mr. Vallerio

It’ll be awhile before the next mistake in haste

Petitions are everywhere, and signing is easy

Step up there proud, and don’t be queasy

Ignore those goons like old Gene Schilling

Follow the lead of Tony Hershey, God willing

And make a difference now, before it gets more sleazy.
