A Poem for Scotty Sales

This has been making the rounds on email today, author unknown.  I’ve posted it here in its entirety.  –Cowgirl

First, house speaker Scotty Sales,
Libeled Lincoln with his tales,
Sop intended for the right,
They’d stand together in their might


Koop and Butcher heard the call,
In echelon they all stood tall,
Poor Eddie barely reached Scott’s knees,
Koop Dog hugged his barren tree.


Now united they each chanted,
‘The stimulus must be recanted!’
Certain that their plan would hold,
Each man’s actions grew more bold.


Koop began to track his score,
While Butcher bellowed like a boor,
Even Scotty found some fame,
In an illegal poker game.


Each with his own distraction,
Missed the rise of a new faction,
They screamed and made a frightful din,
When the house became a log cabin.


Realizing that they’d been beat,
Each left town in quick retreat,
Saner heads now held the field,
That our boys had had to yield.


Scott returned to Bozeman town,
Where fate again made him a clown,
For there wife Sandy broke the law,
By stealing money from her ma.


Seems she felt that it was hers,
To spend on items such as furs,
She stopped and shopped in each new store,
Until dear Alice had no more!


Scotty claimed he did not see,
The evidence of perfidy,
Saying, ‘Surely it’s not my fault,
That Sandy raided Alice’s vault.’


Why did Scott forsake his wife?
To simply save his public life?
If so, I say with wit most wry,
That the following slogan should apply:


‘Vote for Scott and you shall see,

That he’s as honest as Sandy!’

  1. I seem to recall Buck Owens and Roy Clark wrote the anthem for today’s hand wringing progressive movement. It’s a real knee slapper.


    Gloom, despair, and agony on me
    Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
    If it weren’t for bad luck
    I’d have no luck at all
    Gloom, despair, and agony on me…

      non sequitur much, dude? But hey, now’s a good time to enlighten us about rightwing art and literature. WHO were those great rightwing writers, poets, and artists again? Anyus Rant??…..BWHAHAHAHAHAHAA!

  2. Since when is replying to complete nonsense with a little Hee Haw humor non-sequiturous?

  3. I get some of the references like about Roger Koopman’s liberty tree, but what’s the story with the illegal poker game?

    Oh no.

    Not another political blog featuring poetry.
