Unfavorite Things

by Julia Griffin

“Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and former personal attorney for ex-President
Donald Trump, appeared on Wednesday’s episode of the Fox singing show in a jack-in-the box
costume. He belted ‘Bad to the Bone.’”

NBC News

How much—besides one greasy grin—
We’d lose of what this land rues
By trading Giuliani in
For lovely Giuliandrews!

Our Giuli could have danced all night
With genuine conviction,
And while she sang, how sweet and bright
And flawless was her diction!

But Rudy belting on about
The badness in his bone
Earns praise for honesty, no doubt,
But none for taste or tone.
