Ken Duncan: serpents, and snakes


Ancient Wisdom

Conservative and Liberal,
unlike words early man used
to describe groups of stars,
are creative, but inappropriate.

Republicans who cut taxes,
increase spending, wage wars,
claim deficits don’t matter,
call themselves Conservatives.

Democrats claim to be Liberals
while promoting welfare reform,
higher prices for imports,
conservation and more rules.

Perhaps it’s time we use
old time imagination and look
for similarities. Call one party
Serpents, the other Snakes.
