 . . . with thanks to a friend and fellow Viz subscriber, as well as Barbara Asboe (of Pocatello) who submitted this poem to a newspaper in Pocatello.



There once was a woman from Cannes
Who for state representative ran 
She toted a gun 
So she naturally won, 
Then they found she was really a man.

Some folks who adore Idaho 
Want to cling to our loved status quo 
They greet with a frown 
Any new folks in town 
And tell them to “gaddup and go.”

Instead of a loving caress 
They polish their guns with finesse 
They meet their new neighbors 
With pistols and sabres 
And municipal scorn — in excess.

Our state Legislature’s passe 
They enact grotesque laws every day 
Not to help kids progress 
But to feather their nests 
And to honor their god: NRA.

They abhor the minimum wage 
And caring for those of old age 
Their corporate hearts 
Rising way off the charts 
Leaves citizens full of outrage.

The time’s come to vote out “dose bums” 
Grab your piccolo, fife and your drums 
Cast out the poor souls 
Who clog Idaho’s rolls, 
So our government, once again, hums.

   Barbara Asboe, Pocatello


Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

"There's room at the top they are telling you still.
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
If you want to be like the folks on the hill."
