Fox News Gumbo: A Poem (with apologies to Master Will)

Fox news gumbo

 

Conjuration, mumbo jumbo,

Let’s make a pot of FOX News gumbo.

 

Wink of Palin, PAC ad break

In a black maw boil and bake;

 

Grumble, grumble, moil and mumble;

broadcast shit and stir up trouble.

 

Eye of Newt, toe of Santorum,

Copies of the Penthouse Forum.

 

Newscasts rife with stirred-up trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

 

Grumble, grumble, moil and mumble;

broadcast shit and stir up trouble.

 

Admin fuck-up – Benghazee!!!

Carnage worse than Wounded Knee!!!

 

Ersatz outrage, squawking heads,

looped forever in endless threads.

 

Rush Limbaugh: misogyny;

Xenophobic: Sean Hannity.

 

Israel, the Middle East?

Love the war but hate the peace.

 

Debunk science, evolution,

global warming, air pollution.

 

Grumble, grumble, moil and mumble;

Broadcast shit and stir up trouble.

 

Cool it with some David Frum

 

Presto!

 

Something wicked this way comes . . .
