Impolitic Licks

in Politics by
I luv Beto’s bod
and except for one City Council stand
to bulldoze El Paso barrios
that helped his billionaire father-in-law developer
maybe would vote for O’Rourke for President
of some high school Student Body
if the not ready for primetime
policyless pep rally rollout’s age-old American
political theater trope’s silent, supportive wife
didn’t signal three strikes and you’re out…perhaps.
