The candidates are coming!
Bolt the shutters! Bar the door!
We remember what’s ahead of us–
We’ve seen it all before:
They’ll infect the very airwaves
With their messages of hate;
They’ll trade poison barbs and arrows
(Though they’ll call it a “debate”)
There’s an idiot from Texas
(it’s apparently a rule)
Who thinks God, not evolution,
Should be taught to kids in school
And a “maybe I’ll be running,
But I need a little push”
Cos the people with the money
Think we need another Bush
We’re all hoping for another–
They’ll be running as a pair–
Donald Trump will run for POTUS
With his running mate, his hair
And they’re mostly anti-science
And they’re mostly anti-gay
And they’re all in competition
For the dumbest things to say
As the list continues growing
Seems it’s only getting worse…
But… Here’s an open invitation:
Try contributing a verse!
Comments are open to add to the Great Ballad of the Race of 2016. Any and all candidates are fair game, as well as meta-verses on issues, media, or what you will. And for the non UnitedStatsians out there, feel free to target us as a whole, because ridiculous things are ridiculous.
