Magpie Tales – Week Thirteen


What I want to know is where is Big Brother?
Shouldn’t he already know my druthers?
Yes I’m a married woman of a certain age
But the ads are nonsensical on my Facebook page.

I’m not an Ohio mom and I served my college time.
I don’t need to go to school on the POTUS’s dime.
I’m a liberal, green, marriage equality freak -
One more Michelle Bachman ad’ll make me shriek!

Where are the ads for reusable bags?
Where are the ads for gay pride flags?
Where are the ads for immigration reform?
Where are ads for off-season candy corn?

Big Brother is not the all-knowing eye.
That whole idea is just pie in the sky.
