We all know Sarah Palin is no professor when it comes to the English language, which is why we were both shocked and amused to see that she has recently become a poet.
No, seriously. Byliner executive editor Michael Solomon has given us the gift of stripped-down Palin prose by taking more than 24,000 pages of e-mails dispatched during her reign as governor of Alaska and churning them out as poems.
Am I supposed to be charging meals
While I am away from Juneau?
Or does per diem cover my meals --
I haven't charged any meals to the state,
Just a couple of coffees while outside
During these six months in office.
Am I doing this right?
What about Todd's meals
If he's traveling for First Gentlemen duties?
Is the intent for his per diem to cover meals entirely,
Or was he to have been keeping receipts
What about family?
I'd like to be real clear.
