This is probably the sharpest bit of poetic satire I’ve seen in a very long time.
Thank you for posting that, it made me laugh. If you haven’t, you should check out more of Calvin Trillin’s stuff.
Damn. That’s right up there with Kate Harding’s “He Raped a Child” piece for Salon.
Cause he raped a 13 year old. That’s not even in question.
Someone get that poet the best cut of meat, a full horn of mead, and the seat to the right side of the king, ’cause that’s old school satire… the sort which is supposed to hurt.

I didn’t know Calvin Trillin wrote poetry.
I’ve seen him on talk shows– He really is a master of deadpan satire.
