A Politician Is An Ass
This one will require some explanation.
Depending on where you find this poem, the word “ass” may be replaced by the word “arse,” a delightful (if archaic) word, interchangeable with the word “ass” when the the topic is not a quadruped.
Which is correct? My guess is that “arse” is the term actually used by the poet. But I think we can agree that somebody sitting on his arse, or even upon his (anatomical) ass, is not as interesting to view as somebody sitting on a donkey. So I have drawn a donkey because I’m the artist and I do what I please.
My idea is that the donkey is the politician, offering free rides to anyone offering suitable bribes—I mean, contributions. The creature who rides him is neither man nor donkey. I suspect that he will become a true ass, if he wins the election.
Remember Pinocchio and his friends, and what happened when they went to Pleasure Island? Well, that’s what happens when somebody ends up in Washington.
