Mostly it's an Entertaining show.
Down and Dirty is this years theme,
Bush and Kerry ~ Both Extreme.
Ones far left ~ The other far right.
America's caught in their sight's.
One likes to mouth ~ Pretend he's big.
The other plays war and never reneges.
One flaunts his war stories to the press,
The other doesn't like to digress.
They never agree on the subject of Tax,
One moves forward ~ The other backtracks,
Social Security programs for our old,
Listen to the cuts ~ The story unfolds,
One has the facts ~ The other understands,
Neither of them have a workable plan.

As elections come and elections go,
What if a candidate didn't know.
Know all the answers that were asked,
Lowered his political mask.
What if this man said, "I'll do my best.
I just want to make one request,
As Americans you have to know,
I'll lead you where we have to go.
But I can't fix all things for every man,
Sometime we have to alter our plans.
As a Country ~ Our people come first,
We feed us before we disperse,
Our sick and our old will not be forgotten.
America First ~ Is Our New Doctrine."

What if this man ~ A common Jo,
Told the truth ~ When he didn't know.
What if he stood proud and tall.
And quietly said,
"All I can do, is walk before you all?" [comments] => 5 [counter] => 158 [topic] => 4 [informant] => tifrob [notes] => [ihome] => 0 [alanguage] => english [acomm] => 0 [haspoll] => 0 [pollID] => 0 [score] => 10 [ratings] => 2 [editpoem] => 1 [associated] => [topicname] => news )

I would vote for that in a heartbeat. I am so tired of all the political rhetoric. It sickens me to have to vote for what I feel is the lesser of two evils, not what would be best for the us, the people. Neither deserve the post of President.

Amen! You've said it all right there. Once again you've wowed me with your incredible talent to write poetry. You know what I think you should run for election. Go up there and make that speech. You got my vote!
