    During our recent election I was pondering the selection
    and the issues that were vexin' half the nation, I am sure.
    Which of these two candidates was the better in debates?
    Who would least contaminate what Democracy stands for?
    'Tis a difficult decision, one that I cannot ignore;
    Is it Bush or is it Gore?

    And as campaign fever mounted Mr. Nader was discounted
    from the very start of this most memorable race.
    He was deemed inconsequential - Business thought him pestilential -
    But I found him providential, the Man for the Populace.
    His campaign was one that wasn't mired in disgrace
    or had priorities misplaced.

    Yet no matter who's the victor, something's wrong with the Big Picture
    when the big guys only bicker, cast aspersions, trade insults.
    One of these will be our savior? Not to my mind! Such behavior!
    He would soon be in disfavor with intelligent adults.
    Not the sort of leader who gets positive results,
    or whose morals we exult.

    Now our country sits in waiting, poll results extrapolating,
    counties still enumerating as the vote recounts progress.
    Much to my surprise and sorrow as each day becomes tomorrow,
    we can't beg or steal or borrow a solution to this mess.
    Who will win the Oval Office is no more than just a guess -
    nothing more and nothing less.

  2. Same comments, though poetically, skillfully posed again since your ruler got elected twice (actually the first time wasn't kosher anyway). From your lips to God's ear - as the world watches (and scratches their heads) ever since...

  4. "pondering the selection
    and the issues that were vexin' half the nation"

    ...and that the other half weren't vexin' at all but were so damned sure of their own self-righteousness...
