Americas Presidential Race - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

America! America!
The presidential race is on
America! America!
History is made when the race is won

The President is about to be displaced
These words are spoken with a lightface
In this little head, thoughts fight for space
Looking for evidence and clues to trace

Who can outpace?
Who can outrace?
Who can deliver not grass but grace?
As the president is about to be replaced

The agenda could be gender
In a political race of all races
The winner could be older and bolder
In this political footrace
Who does America embrace?
Which candidates do the people erase?

Who cares?
Who fears?
This change is about to and will take place
As the president is about to be replaced

No one cares if he is black or white
Or if the other man is too old to fight
No one cares if she is a woman
It is either the democrats or the republicans
Anyone can emerge as that political face
As the president is about to be displaced

America! America!
The presidential race is on
America! America!
History is made when the race is won

    What in the world does someone like Ray know about politics?
    Pay no mind to his drivel, Sylvia! Think and read all you can about American history and draw your own conclusions!

    What you may not know about American politics is that Presidents are pre-chosen and pre-appointed. The citizen vote is only a formality to placate the sleeping masses.
    If the vote counts are close, they rig the outcome with programmable voting machines.

    Wall Street Bankers, Industrial and military complexes are the ones that are running things, make no mistake about it. They unscrew & remove the head of the lame duck president and screw on the head of the incoming president...and everything remains the same.

    We the voters are nothing more than cattle bred to consume goods and services...did I forget to mention that we have to pay for health care and that no one retirement age can live on Social Security...but I digress.

    Wonderful commentary, from the race is on to noone cares! Black, white, young, old, male, female....History is made when the race is won. Seems like once the race is won, our presidents (both parties) die, from the neck up that is! ! (Report) Reply
