Vive La Resistance!

I first met my neighbor Cindy when she sideswiped my car. She had just been let go been terminated from her book editor position due to the sudden onset of a degenerative condition that was rapidly destroying her vision (hence the sideswiping). Since that day we’ve become friends. Our love of writing is mutual, as are our left-leaning political views. When I gave her a batch of cookies, Cindy wrote this limerick in response. It may be the highest compliment my cookies have ever received.

Our nation’s morale is sub-zero

Our President’s worse than Rome’s Nero.

But taste Laura’s confection

And you’ll shout, “Damn the election!”

And Resist as though you were a hero
