Egg On Her Face
Roosters in Iowa

Is that Peggy Hamburg with egg on her face?
Salmonella for thousands. Was she too slow to act?
Is she yet another glum Obama appointee
Who's become the victim of hacks that she backed?

For this wasn't because all those hens live together.
It's not sex they're needing. Roosters? No way.
What they need are inspections and vaccinations.
Viagra for roosters? A waste, unless they're gay.

No, oversexed roosters aren't causing the problem
Or else they'd be crowing on Fox TV news.
What's OK for chickens still is for humans.
Let's hope Peggy respects these Iowan views.
