Tricks and tangles,
Stories and jingles.
It’s election time.
For it to be over.
Wish I drank.
Don’t want to be sober.
Such a tragedy,
What has become
Of the media monster.
So much for a peaceful outcome.
I will dip my head
Into a hole,
And hold it there
‘Til all this blows over.
It will be a flop,
But ratings will soar,
And anxiety will soar higher.
Does it matter
What the candidates are doing,
Or what the experts say
About their predictions?
As most will be glued
To the television,
Despite the garbage.
Let the fun begin.
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
Hamburger raccoon semblance tangerine
Tango Fritos cantankerous prenuptial end
Barbaric developers changling forever pin
Lackluster Sakagawea stupify talentless
Thrift shop sandwiches Colonels scuba is
Escaping moloch swauve groove meaning
Angrily cutting knowledgeable Antoine B.
Fraudulent granulated goofball golfers on
Boombox angelic cubscout kneecapped in
Outperformed peeved jumpers dunking
Maleate foolhardy laurels barrier reefers
Malfunction swanky miniskirt cool jocks
Railing mall stud vacuum head football
Star jingle pocket sports car drug rush in
Jail drink drive kill homicide vermouth
Talent trip dance millionaire trend mag
Embellished inebriated collision simulate
Manipulate concentration maximize want
Sorted confuse tackled tissue cross weave
Martyr tangle steep quarter wallow malty
Factuality queasy quality abusive wonder
Koala canker sock man-o-war laughing
Moved talent satchel smartly alpha alter
Neatly lounged sane marker elevating if
Rocking challenge chuck such Walter me
Render robbery ticklish watching racked
Between barista single sweep entangled
Return move running merely socket hock
Marry swat walk maligned macaroni tack
Rocking channel swallow mellow tackled
Valiant squabbling teachable realistic ick
