In her attempt to deny the free speech rights of a group called “Patriot Prayer,” Nancy Pelosi argued that the group should not be granted a permit to hold a prayer rally on public lands because you can’t “yell wolf in a crowded theater.” Below, American Greatness’ resident poet, Joe Long, memorializes the howling stupidity and mixed metaphors of this comment.


The Proverbs of Pelosi

You mustn’t cry “wolf” in a theater,
Nor shout “Ship ahoy!” in a blizzard.
You should learn CPR for food pois’ning,

And it’s rude to lift curtains on wizards.

The Bill of Rights makes it quite clear that
You can get an abortion – for free.
And your pistol can get a gay wedding –
At least, semi-automatically.

Our dear planet’s increasingly warmer,
And the Russians are under the bed,
And jihad is a peaceful endeavor,
And the President’s out of his head.

You mustn’t cry “wolf” in a theater;
You’d be likely to frighten the sheep –
And you should assume voters no brighter than
Their Senators.

NOW you may weep.

    Two dumbs don’t make a right. Neither of these people need to be thrust into my world.

    You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd

    You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd

    You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd

    But can be happy if you’ve a mind to.

    You better cry wolf in a theater if there is one, like the Neo-Marxist representatives in Congress!
