John, Hillary Or Barack - Poem by Luke Easter

Well, well, well, sooner or later it raises its ugly head,
This is only for the adults so send the kiddies to bed,
No longer only politics because front and center is race,
Who is the best qualified has just moved to second place.

An issue that will never die is the main topic once again,
But what about the discrepancy between women and men?
Same route, education, position and decisions day after day,
The exact same job however, it’s never the exact same pay.

Oh, but this is very different, special, black against white,
What ever happened to the distinction of wrong or right?
Wasn’t that the main reason to leave England and begin?
A new land where equality is an opportunity for all men?

Notice that I didn’t mention supporting equal rights for all,
March 2008, we still have black and white shopping malls,
Then there are areas where only the Italians will fear to tread,
Some neighborhoods you walk in only to be carried out dead.

A preacher of the church of Jesus Christ says America be damned,
Isn’t that like opening peaches only to find pineapples in the can?
So, who in the heck am I to say anything, well it is only because,
Every single bible I have ever read claims the greatest gift is love.

Didn’t a guy named Paul say forget those things that are behind?
Can you reach for the future with the past foremost in your mind?
What is all this crap about being qualified to handle foreign policy?
More important is getting America straight, sure makes sense to me.

Why aren’t Geraldine and Jeremiah running their own campaign?
Because most in this great nation are fed up with the same old thing,
Republican or Democrat, whichever way you vote in this election,
Make sure it is not status quo we need an entirely new direction.

Think hard before casting your ballot for John, Hillary or Barack,
It’s only March 21 and there’s plenty of time still left on the clock,
Do not let hatred cause you to cast your vote based solely on fear,
Whosoever wins the election will be there a minimum of four years.

The wrong candidate might cause damage that we could never repair,
All because once again the wrong person is being sent to reside there,
Whom ever that is represents the entire country not just the White House,
The “President of the United States, ” is not a game of cat and mouse.
