“Disbelief ,” a new poem by Johnny Wink

July 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.
