On The Band Wagon


Governor's race - only one candidate is coming,
answering questions.

Quipping, joking, attacking issues with inane
remarks, causing laughter to erupt.

Health and education not being addressed, no
substance again being offered.

Yet, he'll support career pathways, occasionally
it seems.

Housing crisis, banks refusing to do the right
thing, this candidate is finally on the band
wagon with talk gathering solutions.

A final ending of candidates and now the
recruitment of people begins.
