The Fool (Quo usque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra?)

ted-cruz-smarmy

the fool, he slanders Cicero

to further shameful schemes

while gathered scoundrels beam

and all fancy themselves heros

 

Pontificate from Senate floor

Denounce the people’s choice

Does violence with his voice

Truth is an inconvenient chore

 

Punch drunk on his sound and fury

the fool blathers and blasts

ignorant of the past

a mockery of history

 

The fool “abuses our patience

We cannot help but think

Pretension is his drink

Though ‘tis not much of a defense

Little boys will play with their toys

picture books, rhetoric

Cruising from bile to dreck

Enamoured with their silly ploys
