Life & Island Times: Good Night White House

Author’s note: Almost a year into our new, stranger times, it feels like we are living in some fictional spooky midwest town. We are beset with multiple sideshow investigative dramas alongside existential threats with childlike leaders trading insults across the oceans. It’s like we are living inside some poorly written and directed film and video game offshoot by Steven Spielberg and Stephen King.

So with the above as prologue, here is a bedtime story for these times.


In the main White House bedroom
There’s a charging smartphone
And a red MAGA ballcap under the dome
And a picture of
some guy named George staring up at the moon
And there were three Russian bears sitting on chairs
And one fat mewling Korean kitten
And a pair of red Chinese mittens
And an unruly Senate and House
Both filled with louses
And a comb and a brush and bowlful of covfefe mush
And a quiet first lady who is whispering “hush”

Goodnight White House bedroom
Goodnight George looking at the moon
Goodnight media talking smack
And that dopey red ballcap
Goodnight Russians
Goodnight chairs
Goodnight fat Korean kitten
And goodnight red Chinese mittens
Goodnight clocks
And goodnight fiscal locks
Goodnight to the Senate, maybe even the House
And good riddance, louses
Goodnight comb
And goodnight orange hair filled brush
Goodnight nobody
Goodnight tweeted mush
And goodnight to the first lady whispering “Donald, hush”
Goodnight alt facts
Goodnight corporate tax
Goodnight stars
Goodnight beltway hot air
Goodnight cable news noises everywhere


At least we are not at the point of this . . .
