Rush Limbaugh’s Awakening

I must admit when I took
the Pagan coven up on
its offer to join their
equinocturnal party

could be so much fun

and after we sacrificed
the pumpkin to Osiris

was incapable
of healing my pain

Why I Hate Eugene Houdry

as are Humphrey and Holden
and maybe soon I’ll be in line
to get their autographs.

and nothing happens,
because no one told me

pre catalytic converters.

I should have used a hibachi.
