American Politics…take Note - Poem by James B. Earley

There’s moral to this story
…’Tis wise in taking note
Of Bibi’s……..creativity
Toward gettin’ out the vote

Sounds racist…some say
But his base understood
…..Responding in-kind
For the greater….good

A Palestinian Homeland
…For all Bibi knows
The very reason…Arabs
Were voting in droves

…..As Bibi….illustrated
Confirmed by the polls…
There’s none greater angst
Than the threatened soul

……In the final…..analysis
It’s about energizing the vote
…Democracy ever in action….
American Politics…take note
