The Weekly in Rhyme Limerick
Election chaos grows
And maybe it goes like it goes
As The Democrats chant
Their unity rant
The ballot counting flows
But Dems & GOP
A bit Like the big Red Sea Parting ways
Will the parties ever unite
The futures not looking bright
The blue & the red
Are divided instead
It’s quite the American plight
Joe Biden says “here’s the deal”
The trumpsters claim “stop the steal”
Was there voter fraud?
The systems flawed
The nation needs to heal
But what about the hate
Is that our American fate
Both sides seem glued
To being rude
It’s like a bad blind date
Biden is Bidin’ his time
It’s a National pantomime
Trump won’t concede
Can he take the lead
It’s hard to explain in rhyme
Now new COVID rules
Are The leaders fools
Lockdown at 10
Let’s return to zen
We’re all just molecules
The votes are plodding along
Why Were the pollsters so wrong Was the election fixed
Feedback is mixed
Let’s all just sing a song
Its National homemade bread day
So flour and knead away
From rye to ciabatta
And challah why notta?
Now where is my Chardonnay?
