    I didn’t know that song parody existed. My take-off was from the following:


    “They seek him here, they seek him there,

    Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.

    Is he in Heaven? Is he in Hell?

    That damned, elusive Pimpernel.”


    It is a recurring mocking rhyme from “The Scarlet Pimpernel,” specifically the 1934 movie with Leslie Howard: An English aristocrat works under disguise as a seemingly harmless fop to save people from capture by Robespierre during the French Revolution.


    I intended my comment as a turn-about, the Pimpernel as a villain instigating and defending rioters from rightful government prosecution. Obviously my theme was too esoteric, and I didn’t make my point.

    ”Sedition Seed-em”

    They seek them here,

    They seek them there,

    Those Feddies seek them everywhere!

    Find them on Twitter? Or on FaceBook?

    Or might Congress be the place to look?

    Unlike the Scarlet Pimpernel,

    These sedition spreaders belong in Hell!

    If the Rupert Murdoch we see looks this bad, I hate to think what his “Dorian Gray” picture looks like by now.

    FYI, I ordered vegetable garden seeds from a few catalogs, and the seeds will be here shortly. I order early to get the varieties I want. I wish I had the nerve to order the seeds for “Carolina Reaper” hot peppers. But “Serrano” peppers are even too hot for me, as my digestive tract found out many years ago.

    ”Poor Joseph Biden”

    Poor Joseph Biden

    Hoped something was hidin’

    In the cupboard that Donald had left.

    But when he reached in around,

    To his dismay he soon found

    That of things needed the cupboard bereft.


    So he made a long list

    Of things that would be sorely missed

    If not soon reordered and stocked.

    But when he went to shoppin’ to buy ‘em,

    The Repubs mostly defied ‘im,

    And Joe’s list of items was mocked.


    The Rich were amused

    That the Poor felt abused

    That supplies in the cupboard were gone.

    As they wiped mouths and burped

    From the funds they had slurped,

    They were planning tax schemes shrewdly drawn.

    C’mon! It’s the start of Biden’s second day in office, and he hasn’t re-built Rome, yet?? [Arms folded, right foot tapping] What’s the hold up?? Rall must draw many droll cartoons to call this to our attention!!! (—

    C’mon! Admit there will be withdrawal pains. All you editorial cartoonists will, deep down, miss Trump. For the last few years he practically did your work for you. I bet there is a thick folder of “Future Ideas for Trump Cartoons” in your drawers. (—

    When Trump first took the office, it was a similar bamboozle, but the claim was opposite. Anything good that Obama had been doing to effectively counteract the 2008 recession was immediately claimed as an achievement by Trump. That, together with attempting to cancel many of Obama’s other achievements was an attempt by Trumpist conservatives to virtually smudge, if not erase, the previous eight years. The “Ministry of Truth” pundits of conservative media like Fox News were very busy during the Trump years.
