ORDURE IN THE HOUSE

Rate: 6 Flag

We know that Speaker John Boehner

Along with lachrymose couldn't be vainer.

What else is one (or two) to conclude

On seeing him practice how to brood?

Of course he looks more human crying

But that too's rehearsed, like 4th of Julying.

The one sincere thing we can see

In this paragon of the GOP

Is delusions of mediocrity.

Rhyming "Boehner" and "vainer" is quite the no-brainer. (Okay it's actually brilliant but I really really wanted to rhyme too.) The whole poem is.
Forgot to mention the title; that stands alone.
