Mud Everywhere

Oh! Mr. Cardinal
you have your feet in the mud,
you’ll track it everywhere
from bird feeder perches
to rain scoured clean limbs.

I know you were taught better
than to trail mess behind mess;
I reckon appetite takes precedence
over all good rearing. I thought,
only, politicians acted like that.

Dear Sir, you were my first gentleman caller in Merryville! Thank you for taking the time to leave your kind comment.
I've enjoyed my visit to your site as well and have bookmarked it for future visits.
This poem made me smile...though I can think of many a politician who does not!
Best wishes!

Mud is to bird as BS is to politician.

(i've just been having a swipe at politicians too - for a future post)

Thanks Pris!! Just a matter of what color crook do you prefer.

Thanks MB!!

Thanks Margie!!

Thank you Dsnake!! I'm glad it's over and the idiotic ads are gone!! Now if we can get the pungents to crawl back in their holes. Sorry, didn't mean to insult the snake.

Thank you Kai!!

Me, you and the American people!!

Mrs. Staggs glad to be a first!! Thanks for returning the visit!!

C, it all smells to me!!

Floots, I figured somebody would call me on that. I do hold the Cardinal(of the avian variety)in much more esteem than insinuated in the poem.

Why Cathy I just don't know. I would be glad when I get enough recorded to send you a cd. Let me know. Thank you!!

SB, thanks!!

No a politician would cover his tracks
or blaming it on a different politician seems popular too
