For a Congressman

by James Fabris

LET us raise a glass to a congressman most frank
and toast his battle with a demented town-hall crank
who defaced our bold image of hope iconic
with the visage of a despot most demonic.

Why risk pissing off the powerful and wealthy
merely to catheter the poor and unhealthy?
Politically speaking, it just makes better sense
to remain seated on the rhetorical fence.

But brave Barney, that hero of screen and cable,
refused to debate a dining room table.
Contemptible nonsense, he would not suffer.
A gay Talmudic Hitler could not be tougher.
