Thesaurus Rex (Re-mix)

Thesaurus Rex

Rex Murphy, Thesaurus Rex

scold of left and right,

contrarian curmudgeon,

Christopher Hitchens lite.


Rex, you dazzle and perplex

lamenting this, that, the state of the nation

in your orotund hands, an after dinner stroll

becomes a post-prandial perambulation.


Rex Murphy is a pundit on the CBC’s nightly news program, the National, which is one of the last old school news programs, complete with paternal anchor man, Peter Mansbridge, and nightly panels of intelligent people who don’t shout at each other.
