consider the word "tribute". I seem to
be headed for irreverent comic relief ...
as usual! I coined the title word. It
seemed to fit. I also had some Photoshop
fun with a recent newspaper headline.

A tip 'o me hat, a nod o' me head
It' time to pay a tribute
No need to consider our president
He's his own horn to toot.
And now, heaven help us
He says he's high sheriff of the land
No need to pay him accolades
He gives himself a hand
All his crooked white collar cohorts
Think in him the sun has risen
That comes as no small wonder
He's released them all from prison.
I'm just a little granny
But I'll still have my say
I plan to save my tribute
And pray for a brighter day,
