He's Not an Eggplant

We love you
John Boehner

and yes Obama's
"orange is the new black" joke

at the Correspondents' Dinner
probably stung you

but is the best response
to your mean Republican peeps

really to start
a Benghazi committee?

This mistake and tragedy
has been probed

in 13 hearings
25,000 pages of documents
and 50 briefings

and trying to implicate Obama

any more
than he already has been
seems like a good way

to squander Congress's 
sweet vacation
from passing bipartisan legislation

with busy work.
