The Obvious vs. The Oblivious


Each week Drinking Liberally produces some great poems:

The Senate takes the obvious step
and tries to condemn lynching –
there are oblivious GOPpers who still say No.

A Dem & GOPper point out the obvious:
our policy in North Korea isn’t working
– and oblivious W. refuses to listen.

Terri Schiavo’s autopsy finds there had been
severe, irreparable brain damage — “Dr.” Frist
still claims she had no right to die with dignity.

And Dean says DeLay should go to jail,
…& the Republicans keep him as their leader.

By now we’re used to the tenor of the news:
the battle between the Obvious vs. the Oblivious

Obviously, it’s time to escape the oblivious
and join like-minded left-leaners
at our weekly Democratic drinking club.
