My neighbor, Adam, told me
With a sheepish sort of grin
“I’ll be voting for The Donald,
Cos you know that Trump won’t win”
“It’s a protest vote I’m casting
Just a message being sent–
No one really wants The Donald
But they really want to vent!”
“Let’s be serious a moment:
Vote for Rubio? Or Cruz?
Vote for Carson, Bush, or Christie?
Holy crap–I’d rather lose!”
“So I’m voting for The Donald,
Though it feels like it’s a sin–
Yes, I’m voting for The Donald
There’s no way that Trump might win.”
So… the way I write, I occasionally jot something down and completely forget about it. This is one of those; I just found it on a notepad, in handwriting that suggests I might have been asleep, or nearly so. It dates from before Christie dropped out of the race, but beyond that I wouldn’t be able to be more exact. Probably just before the NH primary would be my guess.
It’s not nearly as funny now. Now it’s scary.
