Hope Should Not Spring Eternal

They held an election and nobody voted Politicians complained they were grossly misquoted  Atlas shrugged  The world unplugged Slipped violently way out of kilter.  Tea cups tipped Newscasters quipped Walk don't run but please get to the shelter.  Strategists tasked to come up with a plan Went back to the time when the country began Senators grumbled Sarcastic mumbles  Accusatory fingers were pointed  Who's to blame What a shame Blame the system, its alright we're disjointed.  But another campaign will be meticulously planned Based in part on the sweat of the poor working man Campaign promise Faith jaundiced A silent prayer for a magical elixir   Tradition rules A ship of fools Looks like spoils still belong to the victor.
