Unfortunately, so careful and precise was our planning that we didn't end up with any "lost limericks" left over this week to use here, so we're proud to present instead these fugacious tributes to the weekend demise of the governor of Alaska, written by guest limericist and long-time p3 correspondent Barbara (who's probably already updated her résumé--she's just that good):
The Palin announcement is curious,
The reasons suspiciously spurious,
Her ethics aren’t trusted,
Her budget is busted,
I think she just quit ‘cause she’s furious.
The Palin report sparked a chorus
Of pundits who asked “What’s before us?”
Will she mount a campaign,
Make talk shows her domain?
Or perhaps she’ll just watch Russia for us.
