Poem: A Talk Radio Host & A Plea for Enthusiasm

In Boston there is a talk radio host
Whose voice is a cross between
A Zamboni ice resurfacing machine
And Sweetums from the Muppets.

Eloquent as a garbage disposal
Chewing a pint glass,
This individual doesn’t like unions,
Gays, or higher education.

Let us love one another
Irrespective of what engorges our privates.
Let us let our opposing ideologies
Play contrapuntally atop our affinities.
Let us say “Yea” repeatedly.
Let us let our unqualified affirmations
Rip over the airwaves of this Commonwealth.
