That's Why I Love Democracy

           November is coming our way
      And candidates fight through the fray
                But one is unique…
                A Republican freak
        Who really has nothing to say. 

           Diplomacy’s his finest trait;
      Such humbleness no one debates.
               His point of view
                 Is ever so new;
       So calm, so serene, so sedate?

      Such eloquence ne’er seen before.
           His dignity all can adore.
               Few understand
             This wonderful man
      Everyone wants more and more?
     Be careful of who gets your vote.
        If he gets it he’ll surely gloat
            And gladly he’ll share
          With that comb-over hair
      That he just got America’s goat.

Guiding Star O'er Washington

I pray a  bright star will shine in the air

    O'er Washington to guide some wise men there

        Bringing gifts of commonsense

            And harmony to dispense

                To a nation that is in disrepair

What I'd Love Now to See

My small way of showing anger for this year's circus of an election process: I recall when George Bush had to duck a thrown shoe, or he may have got struck. What I'd love now to see is some dog take a pee on that dump of a Trump. What a schmuck! for the the Political Ordeal Poetry Contest of CT

You can't have one without the other

The concept of gays in a marriage
One side loves and one will disparage
But rule supreme court
And one side must retort
Justice just had a miscarriage

Author's note:  Regardless of the outcome from the supreme court, I happen to favor gay marriage.  There really is no other conclusion since we are a land of equal rights.  We should do all we can to foster a society without discrimination.  The arguments against these rights reveal a lot about certain people of religious persuasion.  It would be comical if it were not so sad.

Why Hillary Should Wear Flame Retardant Pantsuits

It was as wrong as it was illegal
and may yet in the courts have a sequel:
  seems like the FBI
  thinks it's OK to lie
and deceive the American people!

Bye Gadaffi

Gadaffi!  That hole in your temple 
will put a full stop to your trample 
of the poor Libyans.  
So, now the Syrians 
say, "Assad, step aside; that's a sample."

Pocket Pool?

A political pundit with power
stuffed dollars in his purse by the hour.
When called to court,
he said “Why not, sport?”
My daughter’s in real need of a dower.

And, while running a nasty ad game
He cried out “Why I’m not to blame!”
He did it too,
So *crew to you!
And he rose up on a tide of acclaim?

The Last Laugh?

Democracy now that is a laugh
When the voting is all stacked with graft
And I will give you a plug
If you punch out that lug
If you believe me you’re really daft!

You say you’re poor and you’re not real able
To put food and some bucks on the table
Just right say the rich
Starve and don’t *itch
Or drop by and muck out my stable!

Grad’s from Vassar and Yale all abhor
Those in Appalachia with dirt floors
But they own the coal mines
And their wealth is refined
They won’t mess up their minds keeping score.

You can’t get a real education
In this righteous American nation
Well go read a book
Or go shoot a crook
Rise to your appropriate station!

Riding the Tide

                    There was a far-right Republican named Sally,
                    who watched the starlight from the alley.
                    Flat on her back,
                    along with her rack,
                    the walls were all chalked with her tally.

                    She felt so politically correct,
                    to the men who all came erect.
                    They screamed out her name,
                    without any shame,
                    to the woman they hoped to elect.

                    One day this liberal named Hank
                    stopped by to visit this skank.
                    Down on her knees,
                    she was trying to please
                    a man she had no reason to thank.

                    Not wishing at all to be rude,
                    Hank decided he wouldn't intrude.
                    He waited and watched,
                    the climax get botched,
                    then gave her his views in the nude.

                    She listened at length to Hank's pitch,
                    impressed that he wore not a stitch.
                     "I'll follow you down,
                      to the booth here in town,
                      as you finally convinced me to switch."

                    Hank couldn't believe his luck.
                    And the rhyme that I'd like, I must chuck.
                    He walked down the street,
                    parading his meat,
                    not fearing or wishing to duck.

                    The two of them drew quite a crowd,
                    as none of the voters were proud.
                    Those undecided,
                    so often chided, 
                    listened to Hank and bowed.

                    The crowd at the hall was immense.
                    Their clothes they tossed on a fence.
                    All in the buff,
                    proud of their stuff,
                    the voting was quite intense.

                    When the ballots were finally counted,
                    they all thanked the gal who got mounted.
                    She started the tide,
                    that produced a landslide.
                    So there was no need the votes be recounted.

Bill (in) Hillary? A turgid question.
Monica eased prostatic congestion.
His Altoids improved the taste,
while her dress absorbed the waste.
Her mother kept the prized possession!

Nancy Pelosi

Pelosi showed she's totally unfit

   And cares about common folk not one whit

      When touting Obama Care,

Main-Stream Media Have-A-Heart Trap

Each day foul critters infest our house
Though not by slipping in like a mouse
We just press a button
Or buy a subscription
To get news wrote or spoke by a louse

These creatures of the two legged kind
Try hard each day to persuade our mind
With sly information
That helps the causation
Of the falling apart of mankind

They tout the need for unearned welfare
Claim hard earned profits are so unfair
And granting amnesty
Is a good policy
Plus growing our debt is fine they swear

For those who work hard earning their way
Give what they can and put some away
Are sick of the slackers
Prodded by the backers
Whose aim is using half truths to sway

It’s hard to ignore those talking heads
But it’s not right to tear them to shreds
Yet there’s a solution
And with execution
We can spread liberty in their stead

We’ll put Obama pic’s and golf caps
Along with a taped speech that he yapped
In a human sized crate
Coz it’s time to create
A main stream media Have-A-Heart trap

Like it or not, these traps are humane
But anyways, we’ll have much to gain
So, once we have caught
All those who have brought
Disinformation causing brain drain

We’ll squeeze all of them in through a pipe
Along with politicians who hype
And immorality
Into a sphere of the livable type

In there they can tax to the extreme
And promote their harmful fairness schemes
But when they’re out of dough
They will lip read our NO!
Since their bubble is a sound proof dream!

Neither a follower or leader be,
middle of the flock looks alright to me.
Leaders draw noses in ass,
followers spread bull and gas.
Both make money on their endorsed crime sprees!

Answer Please

The economy's decidedly poor,
But the President's spender ain't sore,
He keeps spending our money, 
And laughs like it's funny,
What happens when there ain't no more?

Pandemonium threatens the land . . .

Down the road; we are all on quicksand.

I'll Tell You A Secret

At best, life is just mass confusion
Finding what's real and what's just an illusion
Speak of politics.  Do I dare?
When finding the truth is so rare.
Because politicians are just an optical illusion!

Phillip Buster

Written by Gail DeBole

Phillip Buster could fluster a room -
Full of men whose anger ballooned
     When came his turn to speak,
     Congress snored for a week,
All dreaming he'd peter out soon.

Gail's note: Filibuster - Type of parliamentary procedure.
Right of the individual to extend debate allowing the lone
member to delay or prevent a vote on a proposal. -Wikipedia

Hillary Clinton

She is a White House witch and feminazi
who rides her big broom like a kamikaze.
  The honesty test she fails,
  she lied about her emails
and covered up the truth about Benghazi!

Forrest Trump

 Run, Donald! Run! and the people represent,
 Mama always said you'd be President.

Note: I wrote one about Hillary so

         not as clueless as he appears.

I got your taxes

Our congress just loves to lament,
about waste when taxes are spent,
but say it ain't healthy 
to tax raise the wealthy
so they tax those that can't pay rent.
Roads and the schools need maintaining,
from taxes I'm not abstaining,
while the poor live on beans
its the ones with the means
that are doing the complaining.

I choose a career that won't pass,
just anywhere near upper class,
but I'll make my dollar 
with sweaty blue collar
The wealthy can all kiss my ass.

the political spectrum

Some folks love doing their thing
And it brings in money and bling!
Just let me make hay
The conservatives say
Even when it gives others a sting

Do people all have basic rights?
Are some blown away like lost kites?
It seems there’s no end
Of a bad mess to mend 
And liberals take on these fights

Author's Note: When the right to make a ton of bucks interferes with other rights that people have--watch out.  I get particularly offended by people who exercise their freedom (and by doing so) interfere with my right to clean air and water and freedom from intrusive smells and noise.  This argument can be extended to a variety of situations.  Where do your rights end and mine begin?  This is the tip of a massive iceberg (which could be melting due to global warming).
