With Apologies To Bob Dylan...

Early this mornin’ the snow was fallin’
I’d just crawled outta bed
Wond’rin’ if I could find the coffee
While my eyes were still red.
The newsman said, as he always does
The day was gonna be rough
He never could find any happy news
And my paycheck’s never enough.
And I was sittin’ at the kitchen table
Havin’ some breakfast pie
Looking out on the internet
And I stumbled on this Guy, you know who,
Tangled Up In Blue.

He had posts about water-boarding,
Poverty, Death, and Abuse
Political dancing all over the world
Where the Devil’s gotten loose
Pointed out laws in 43 states
Where shove has come to push
And gays must sit in the back of the bus
While the driver, mister Bush,
Who’s looking out for his legacy
(Which doesn’t stand a chance)
I have to wonder, when he’s with Cheney,
Which one leads when they dance, the pas de deux,
On Tangled Up In Blue

(in other words, the Carnival of the Liberals is up on Tangled Up In Blue Guy. And he included my entry!)

Well done for another tortured rhyme
You hit the mark time after time
I'm honoured to be liberal too
There's not much more a guy can do
To get in that carnival's top ten
Except to try and try again :)

Hi - I've tagging you with a meme which you are (of course) totally free to ignore if you prefer.

Cuttlefish said...

Ack! A meme!

I am not ignoring it--this is my second tag with this meme, and I am working on an answer.

Some rhymes are easier than others!

The dance was over, long ago
How proud I was of my skill
I never did like how they turned away
And headed towards Hooterville
Alicia's gathered together some stuff
From Greg and Greta and crew
Showin' us all how paying attention
Pays off for me and you
And every one of those posts rings true
And makes me proud to be Left
Cause I just can't pay "The Price of Right"
Their crap is all about theft
And you know it's true
I'm Tangled Up in Blue

Alas, Tangled Up in Blue Guy's blog is now private and will evaporate in February.
