Hurripotus Amerihatus

by Orel Protopopescu

Hello Houston, can you hear me?
I’m in Corpus. Catch my hat?
Don’t be fooled by imitations.
Mine’s made here. Just think of that!

Forty greenbacks on my website,
if you’re wondering. What a crowd!
We won’t say congratulations,
though I did, just now, out loud.

Texas storms bring epic turnouts.
I love Texas. I’m your guy!
Cut the flood zone “safety standards.”
That’ll leave you high and dry.

Didn’t want to call your mayor.
He’s a Dem, so we don’t kiss.
Gotta go and push for tax cuts.
Can we put a lid on this?
