    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., on Wednesday tweeted a poem about special counsel Robert Mueller jailing members of the Trump campaign. “A message to Mueller: Stay strong and stand tall. Continue to investigate them all. You are indeed answering the people's call. The Kremlin Klan is going to fall. Around you the Democrats are building a wall. We look forward to the day, to prison they will all be hauled,” the California Democrat said on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.

Moore's characteristics are statistically not a match. Mac's conclusion: Livingston, not Moore, wrote the poem.

    This is What Boredom Reaps. It’s the quality of man that makes a difference, Though many are shattered souls from endless temptation. Constant bombardment of sensual propaganda, And to retain a translucent dignity when all seems lost. Its unnerving pressure to do what needs to be done, Though the task is simple, the will to succeed is daunting.

    Royce Mann, an eighth grader from Atlanta, Ga., took the Internet by surprise with his poem called, “white boy privilege” that he wrote and recited at his school’s poetry slam contest in May. In the video recently posted by his mother on YouTube, 14-year-old Mann expresses his thoughts on race, gender and equality issues. He began the poem by saying how grateful he was to have been born a white male and said that he loved his “white boy privilege.” “Dear women, I’m sorry, dear black people, I’m sorry… Dear everyone who isn’t a middle or upper class white boy,...

    The poem, Casey at the Bat, by Ernest Lawrence Thayer, was first published in The San Francisco Examiner on this date in 1888: Casey at the Bat by Ernest Lawrence Thayer The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Mudville Nine that day;the score stood four to two, with but one inning more to play.And then when Cooney died at first, and Barrows did the same,a sickly silence fell upon the patrons of the game. A straggling few got up to go in deep despair. The restclung to that hope which springs eternal in the human breast;they thought, if only Casey could...

    Larry Vaincourt's classic poem was first published in his 1987 Remembrance Day newspaper column. There are several incorrect versions of this poem circulating the web; below you'll find the original text. JUST A COMMON SOLDIER (A Soldier Died Today) He was getting old and paunchy and his hair was falling fast, And he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past. Of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done, In his exploits with his buddies; they were heroes, every one. And tho' sometimes, to his neighbors, his tales became a joke, All...

    Dear Diary: Some people look like their dogs; some like their spouses. You see they belong together, and you smile. This subway rider looked like, and belonged to, his thick book. Ginger hair, pulled back in a tail away from his ruddy baby face, matching his scruffy beard. Youthful and burly, rustic and earthy, dressed for the outdoors in a jacket and a pale red flannel shirt. Not yet spoiled by city life, innocent, unadventured, but poised to begin, clutching his treasured story in readiness. What was that book to him? Fiction? History? Autobiography? No clue from his silent eyes,...

    Paleo is my shepherd, I shall not want carbs It maketh me to lie down with leafy greens, it leads me to drink gallons of water it refreshes my gut flora It guides me along nutritional paths for health’s sake Even though I walk through the valley of chocolate I will fear no eclair For thou art with me thy whey protein and thy reduced portions they comfort me You prepare a table before me in the presence of my trainers You anoint my head with fish oil my cup overflows. Surely glucagon and Omega-3s will follow me all the...

    I see the bodies pile high, young girls that squirm and twist, And still the ignorant soccer moms chirp at me “Coexist!” Well, some beliefs are just plain evil, some ideas just don’t rise To any kind of standard that free people cheer and prize. I will not smile while people die, with Liberals grinning dumb I will stand up and shout aloud when monsters drooling come And sadder still than murderous beasts are you who simply stand Foundationless, with no beliefs beyond the shifting sand Like Chamberlain, and weak-willed fools who let vile Hitler grow You will refuse with...

    Two-Hundred and Thirty-eight years ago today They signed their names and history was on its way To be forever set anew upon a pathway none yet "knew". And for the Founders of America fair -- So promising, so hopeful: a dream not yet dared -- Determined to give us Guiding Light, They turned to GOD to guide us right And when in prayer they bent their knee, To seek His wisdom, His guidance be The way to govern our land so fair They turned to Providence, Who is always there. And so a Tribute, to them and to thee For...
