Roland W. Burris Will You Please Go Now!

After being questioned by the FBI last weekend, the news that his son got a sweet patronage job and hearing the growing chorus calling for his hide, I hope Roland Burris listens and resigns soon. He won't, but one can hope...

Rather than express my feelings on this in prose, I thought I would attempt to make it entertaining.

So, here is my advice to Roland Burris (with apologies to Dr. Seuss for the content theft and to Art Buchwald for the idea theft):

Roland W. Burris will you please go now!
The time has come.
The time has come.
The time is now.
Just go.
Go.
Go!

I don't care how.
You can go by foot.
You can go by cow.

Roland W. Burris will you please go now!
You can go on skates.
You can go on skis.
You can go in a hat.
But
Please go.
Please!

I don't care.
You can go
By bike.
You can go
On a Zike-Bike
If you like.
If you like
You can go
In an old blue shoe.
Just go, go, GO!
Please do, do, do, DO!
Roland W. Burris
I don't care how.
Roland W. Burris
Will you please
GO NOW!

You can go on stilts.
You can go by fish.
You can go in a Crunk-Car
If you wish.
If you wish
You may go
By lion's tale.
Or stamp yourself
And go by mail.

Roland W. Burris
Don't you know
The time has come
To go, go, GO!
Get on your way!
Please Roland B.!
You might like going in a Zumble-Zay.
You can go by balloon . . .
Or broomstick.

You can go by camel
In a bureau drawer.
You can go by bumble-boat
. . . or jet.
I don't care how you go.
Just get!
Roland W. Burris!
I don't care how.
Roland W. Burris
Will you please
GO NOW!
I said
GO
And
GO
I meant . . .
The time had come
So . . .
Roland WENT."

We can only hope.
