Ulysses On Ithaca

I don't know what the result of the Italian election will be. Berlusconi looks to be in trouble this time. I don't like the man personally, though he does have a certain style. The alternatives to Belusconi are also depressing. I wrote a poem about Silvio.

Il Presidente Del Consiglio

Berlusca was a crooner,
Frank Sinatra style;
An Italian baby boomer
Filled with Latin guile.

With the help of dark Sicilians,
His meteoric rise,
Brought him countless billions
And “Cosa Nostra” ties.

He bought up Rete Quattro
And also Channel Five.
Became a politician so
He could realize

The dream his ego always craved
To be Napoleon
(A kind of second rate, depraved,
Latino Palmerston).1

“Il Presidente del Consiglio”2
Has a pleasing sound.
Il Gran Signor del Campidoglio3
Finally is crowned!

1. A famous 19th Century British War Secretary and PM.2. Italian Prime Minister.3. The Great Man of the Capitoline Hill.
