That is my thought on election night.
So much stuff that has been tossed
Around by the powers that be,
As well as by we the people.
Why does it have to be like this?
Who wants to feel like our country is
Being torn apart by two people, or
The people behind those people, or
The people behind them?
I hate it for our country, because
We are so much better than a bunch of
Trash talk aimed at pushing our favorite
Candidate to the top, while instead
We are tearing everybody down,
Damn, I can’t wait for closing time.
That will be a sweet hour.
Many of us won’t sleep well tonight,
Maybe for many nights.
We’ll be worried about the fate
Of the country we love,
The lives we’ve worked hard
To build for ourselves,
The future for our children.
Tonight, though, I’ll stick with
