CONVERSATIONS
DON'T THINK OF AN ELEPHANT!
(Title of book by George Lakoff)

Don't picture furious George
that red-ink Republican
arrogantly atop
the elephant
of which you desperately
try not to think

Erase from your brain
Deficit Dubya
as he stampedes us further
into debt
lies us further
into war

Put that elephant
right out of your head
Stand up to Always-Wrong W
Cleanse your mind
of pachyderms
Reframe the issue
