American Voters

I hear that Mit Romney is running
For Obama I hear he is gunning
Will Obama Succeed?
Will he get the votes he will need?
Or will the American voters be cunning

Will they give Mitt Romeny a Chance?
To go to the inaugural dance
Or bring back Obama 
To ride on a llama
Or will both be left in a trance

Well I hope when the votes are all in
You get the one you want to win
But bear this in mind
I’m not being unkind
It will just be the same old again

I only wrote this because we had an election and change of government and that was all that changed. Good Luck America.

    You like us Canadians don't have a lot of choice. Still we vote for the better of the few that we are presented with. Good luck I hope whoever wins makes at least some difference, a lot of people are counting on it. Good poem and thought provoker.

    Oh, so true. I think so many people expect miracles out of their politicians and they get disappointed when things don't change immediately. Being a politician is like trying to carve a statue out of limestone with only water. It CAN be done, but it takes a good long time. (Unless you get out the highly pressurized water hose, but I believe that would be akin to a revolution.)

    Hi Owen, enjoyed your limericks very much. Although I am Canadian, I watch the campaign closely on CNN, it is quite the race, your right nothing really changes except the name, it is the same here in Canada. Love Constance
