For Keith Olbermann Upon His Release From Indefiniteness


I think that I shall never see
A network quite so soon to flee;

To flee when angry minds are prest
Against an anchor’s false arrest;

To flee a Ball of Odd at play,
When Olbermann had hell to pay;

To see its stressing bosses wear
The news of foxes in their hair;

Upon whose coffers snow has lain,
Where once we lib’rals gave like rain.

If only Keith can make their fee,
Why fool with M-S-N-B-C?

A very clever parody, Rod. I had no idea of the breadth of you skills!

Thanks. Just a release of some political energy, but fun to do.
