“Disbelief ,” a new poem by Johnny WinkJuly 20, 2016
Before my eyes on the tv screen
A half an hour ago
A state’s attorney general
Most thoroughly did blow
My mind with her assertion that
Some sentences, devised
For Mrs. Trump’s convention speech
Had not been plagiarized.
It was as if the lady’d said
That she could hardly see
How anyone believed that bed
Starts with the letter b!
The state this lady represents,
Alas, is Arkansas.
Her fellow panelists could not
Refrain from a guffaw.
I’ve got three words for Leslie R.,
Three words that I am sure
She learned in law school long ago:
Res ipsa loquitur.
