On the Kite Strings of a Vice President

(With apologies to Gerard Manley Hopkins)

O the Biden mind, mind has mountains (“Biden was in York, Pa., visiting the Goode Elementary School to argue that the American Jobs Act would support 400,000 education jobs”); cliffs of fall Frightful, sheer (“‘Are we campaigning?’  he said. ‘Yes! We are campaigning to change this environment’”), no-man-fathomed (“‘If our students suffer, our future suffers,’ Biden said, adding, ‘They are the kite strings that lift our national ambitions aloft’”) O my dear.

Hold those kite strings cheap May who ne’er hung there.

  1. No, they are not campaigning. They are rabble rousing.
