I saw this post from a high school friend on Facebook this morning –

If “con” is the opposite of “pro,” then what is the opposite of “progress”? Good morning, Monday.

I sent her a quick reply – There is a limerick waiting to be written.

Thanks Debra. It led to this….

America has been conned by a pro,
But what the disillusioned didn’t know,
The opposite of “progress” –
A Congress hell bent to suppress……
With repressionists running the show!
