None Of The Above (Political) - Poem by John F. McCullagh

I've listened to their speeches.
Read their termite riddled planks.
They're unlikely to dethrone Barrack-
A pity, Mitt is no tom Hanks.
They are out of touch with women,
unsympathetic to the poor.
They're still fighting social issues
that were decided years before.
For a party of small government,
They sure have a lot to say
about Sex in America
among the unwed and the gay.

The Democrats, by contrast,
Hit all the right social notes;
Indeed, they will say anything
if it will buy them votes.
Then, when we hit the fiscal cliff,
The Obamas living large,
I'm sure he'll find some Bush to blame
as long as he's in charge.

Election Day is coming soon,
Both parties seek my love.
Alas, my favorite candidate
is None of the Above.

Horrible choices in the election of 2012. A failed incompetent vs an empty suit

    Election Day is coming soon,
    Both parties seek my love.

    until the election finishes they seek the love, then the citizens will be left to long for love! Poor Democracy!
