Georgie/Dicky Birds

Two little Georgie cronies,
Swimming in a flood, dirty:
One named Mike Brownie,
The other named Mike Chertie.

Fly away, Brownie!
Fly away, Chertie!
Resign now, Fly away!
You drowned the Big Easy!

Two White House Staffers,
Told too many fibby:
One Named Karl Rove,
The other Scooter Libby.

Fly away, Karl!
Fly away, Scooter!
Resign now, Fly away!
You made a big pooter!

William's Whimsical Words:

Lame ducks abound in the Nation's Capitol.
