Herding Cats

Alas for Mr. Lehrer!
Moderating was a terror!
His attempts to curb the candidates
were very seldom heard.
They’d meander and delay,
Adding “I’d just like to say,”
Or a little more aggressively,
“I get the final word!”

With the questions open-ended,
They were cocky and long-winded.
He would try to keep them focused,
but without the least success.
Though they’d flash their friendly smiles,
Given inches, they took miles.
Mr. Lehrer, this is politics.
It sure ain’t PBS!



  1. So glad you’re posting on Facebook so I don’t miss a single pithy recap of a day in our culture, and with rhyme too. Thanks!
