Rhymes & Reasons
A Thankless Thanksgiving in the White House
by Greg Asimakoupoulos

A less-than-memorable holiday for the First Family…
No turkey in the White House.
George dined on lame duck fare.
He had no choice. His goose was cooked
by critics everywhere.
But lame duck can be tasty
if basted in Old Crow.
A bourbon brine can cover up
what goes down oh so slow.
And while my wife baked pumpkin torte
(I cannot tell a lie),
the White House chef served thankless George
a slice of humble pie.
