A Modest Proposal
The Lake District at
twilight finds Bill asking Hill
to be his wife. “Nah.”

Glass Ceiling Grievance
O, Oval Office!
My term yet? Let my hubby
Retire to his sax

A Glimpse of New York’s New Senator
What solid cankle
peeks beneath yonder pant? It
is hers. Hillary’s.

Candidate Hillary
Campaigns are long; wins,
fleeting. Pantsuited and brave,
Hill, she ain’t leaving!

“I’m in. And I’m into Win.”
Finally my turn!
I’ll toss in 14 million.
No biggie. I’m in!

She Announces… Finally
I’m running for prez!
Should I have kept those thirty
thousand ditched e-mails?
