"Nice tie"

Lynching Is Bad? Who knew?
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The Senate said that lynching's bad.
It took them long enough.
It's hardly a position rad,
Yet getting there was tough.

The Dems each said that lynching's wrong.
Not so the GOP.
Some fifteen sang some other song:
Of lynching, "Let It Be."

Bill Frist did try to hide that fact.
He nixed a roll call vote.
So those who did not mensch-like act
Could hide behind his coat.

Frist held a voice vote late, at night,
A formal vote denied.
When challenged on this sneaky slight,
Sen William "Fristy" lied.
