Homily for Romney

So, Mitt Romney Schifffted gears;

And we listen to them grind,

Like his teeth, because the nation’s

Left him very far behind.

 

For the moment, his new friends

Smile in cold satisfaction –

But he’ll find his Schiffting principles

Won’t gain him any traction.

 

Those who now sing fulsome praise,

Found him disgusting, once. Of course,

They haven’t really changed their minds; it’s

We who trusted, who feel remorse.
