Haiku Friday: Senators!

The Senate has been in the news a lot (maybe not as much as The Mooch, but quite a bit at least...). I find the Senate fascinating, both as an institution and as a somewhat bizarre collection of individuals. I never worked there, but wish that I had. IPLawGuy did, though-- that is him in the picture on the right, with a young(er) John McCain on the left and (I think) Freddy Mercury in the middle. God knows what those three were talking about.

So let's haiku about Senators this week-- past, present, or future. You can even name-check members of the old baseball team if you want.  There really are plenty of good choices. Here, I will go first:

Mr. Lindsey Graham
Smashing up his 'lil cell phone
Now that was an ad!

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable pattern and have some fun...

Senate, I thank God
"REPEAL!!!!!!@$&!!!!!!" Is over. Now you
must work together.
Direct to White House:
Obama and Kennedy
Harding only three

The Big Train, Fastball
Walter Johnson, Senator
Hall of Famer

Hondo, Frank Howard
My Favorite Senator
at old RFK

Makes House less Democratic
Senate contests good!

Reed's and McConnell's
Will never hold a candle
To LBJ's tricks.
Hubert H Humphrey,
Could have been a president,
Minnesota tough!
Barack Obama
Once described himself this way:
"Ruthless pragmatist."

I love that! Love the
notion of getting things done.
I miss competence.

Senator missing
Flat Marco appears again
Better than nothing
