The bard of the Yukon

One great disappointment of the past several days is that we haven't heard a single funny line or reference to Robert W. Service (1874-1958), the bard of the Yukon and, most pertinent, Ronald Reagan's favorite poet.
Two of Service's most wonderful poems are "The Cremation of Sam McGee" and "The Shooting of Dan McGrew"
We can only assume that we'll see an adequate topical parody of one of the above in the next few days. Perhaps the Grammar Tip of the Day will come up with one.
