POETRY FRIDAY: George Bush's Nightmare before Christmas

George Bush's Nightmare before Christmas--Brought to you by Brave New Films

Here's an excerpt from George Bush's Nightmare before Christmas:

Yes to all my pals in the big corporations.

Here’s my gift to you: some new regulations.


From Think Progress and The Wonk Room

At Wild Rose Reader, I have an original memoir poem I wrote about my grandmother making her delicious Christmas babka.
