Two weeks ago, we looked at the insect-metaphor-filled writing of Shane Arthur Swing. Swing p?re et fils are back this week, and their new adventures are titled “Better Fixed Now Then Later” and “Politics and Poetry.” Shane’s essay is a kind of Whose Line Is It Anyway take on creative writing, and we salute him for his efforts. Buddy’s work, well, we wonder about a little. We were tempted to do a shorter version (Saddam Hussein is a lot like a poorly built garage that George Bush decided to level,) but realized that just didn’t do justice to the last two paragraphs:
Finally, I installed the vinyl siding. The last, and top, piece was noticeably larger under the facer and soffit assembly that inclined dramatically upward at the end where it was attached to the upward slanting roof that was nailed to the end truss that rocked because of the exaggerated hump in the top of the wall that was caused by the hump in the base where it was attached to the bolt that had a small concrete buildup around its base. Now, it was too late to solve the problem.
President Bush was right. He fixed Saddam Hussein while he was still a small buildup around the base of a bolt.
Which leads us to conclude the following:
Finally, I installed the 101st Keyboard Brigadiers. That last, and top, piece was noticeably larger under the Richard Perle that influenced dramatically at the end where it was attached to the Defense Policy Board that was nailed to the end of Ahmad Chalabi that peddled because of the exaggerated Dick Cheney at the top of the administration that was caused by the Project for a New Century in the base where it was attached to the American Enterprise Institute that had a small Judith Miller around its base.
This concludes Creative Writing with Buddy Swing? for this week.
