A Conservative’s Lament, a poem

I tried to rant, I really did. Maybe you can do better for the A Mused Poetry Contest, due THIS FRIDAY!

Wake Me Up When November Ends

Four years have slowly passed
The leftists weren’t s’posed to last
Wake me up when November ends

Opposition tried to pass
A block to t’Insurrection Act
Wake me up when November ends

Here comes impeachment, ‘gain
Broadcast from TV stars
Our Free Speech is blocked, again;
They’re afraid of who we are.

Only recent mem’ry’s best:
Forgetting riots, loss
Wake me up when November ends

*Sad Harmonica solo*

Summertime went awf’lly fast
Campaigning’s done and voting’s passed
Wake me up when November ends

Count all the votes again
Like we did for Gore again
Wake me up when November ends

Here’s all the jokes again
From my Facebook ‘friends’
Laughing at my pain again
…Like I may have done about Clinton…

Hypocrisy and hatred rest
Wond’ring at the ‘friends’ I’ve lost
Wake me up when November ends

…..

End of year’s now come and passed
Th’impromptu siege just couldn’t last
Wake me up when November ends

Forty-two ‘xecutive orders, passed
Change is coming way too fast
Wake me up when November ends
Wake me up when November end
Wake me up when this pres’dency ends

      I really tried to rant. Maybe I’ll do better with a Liberal view, tomorrow. 🙂

        Surely I’m entitled to a sigh and a right of reply; You’d expect nothing less?
        Four years of building walls,
        Four years of bridges burning,
        Four years of Bad! Sad! calls,
        One trial to guarantee no returning.

          That probably wouldn’t fit my rant theme. 🙂

    I particularly liked the harmonica solo. It reminded me of how Thingy Joe Robinette blows his own trumpet all the way to perdition and no one seems to give a hoot (toot)..

      😀 Likely so. A trumpet fanfare wouldn’t fit.

      This was clearly performed by the completely-unrelated Has-been Day.

          Ha! The theme is supposed to be a rant about life. Maybe about 2020. I guess I could stop being lazy and actually read my own contest post…
