On the Stump
“The people who cast the votes decide nothing.
The people who count the votes decide everything.”
Oh Christ, Presidential Politics are upon us yet again.
We hear all the candidates yowling like tomcats.
We do wonder where in hell is the actual truth?
They attack each other like starving rats in a maze.
Too many of us are filled with disgust.
Some of us never even make it to the polls.
So do they even have the right to complain,
When they choose not to practice democracy?
Can we stumble & elect a demagogue?
Or will we elect the First Madam?
Will Trump pick Palin for his running mate?
Sanders tells us what we have desperately needed to hear.
Personally, I really do feel the Bern.
How can a blowhard clown like the Donald
Gather up such a tremendous head of steam?
Trump has all the finesse of a schoolyard bully.
Is our government so completely broken?
Will 1% billionaires ever be willing to share with us?
Allow the reinstatement of the middle class?
Ever quit putting Congress in their pocket?
Can any political promises come to pass?
Kiss my ass.
Well, we will find out in 2016.Ruptured spleen.
