$50 Billion More

A Trio Of Limericks For Idaho Senator Larry Craig
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Craig confessed to a crime in the loo
He proclaims that he never would do,
Cuz he’s straight as can be:
He was just there to pee,
And perversions he’d always eschew.

When Larry was under arrest,
He was stressed, which is why he confessed.
All his actions are pure
And he’s really demure
And not gay … except when undressed.

Larry Craig says he has a wide stance
In the john when he zips down his pants.
He’s an innocent man:
His arrest in the can
Was an error, cuz Craig ain’t a nance.
