Our Community Scribblings Poem!

Thanks to everyone who replied to my sunday scribblings Invitation!
Here is the Poem that WE The people wrote:

As we all know, an impending historic U.S. election draws near
For Many American's, their essential decision is still unclear.

No matter how you cut it, precedent is about to be set
Is the best (wo)man for the job even running? That’s still anybodies bet

The government’s broken and does not hear our voices
The two party system leaves us with two bad choices

We the people the constitution does say
Although our needs and our wants don't come much into play

Around the world it's making the news
Everyone anxious to see who'll you choose

Will it be the first black man?
Or a veep who's the first woman?

Can't you just wait?
To watch the debate

As Canada anxiously watches from the north
To see whom the American's will pour forth

The biggest economy, the biggest powerhouse,
All hinged upon who conquers, the pretty white house.

Does it all really matter?
They're both full of nonsense and blather.

But whoever wins is sure to regret
The prize of a gigantic national debt.

However, if you believe in the teachings of the Dahli Lama
Then the choice is clear, Barack Obama

So make sure you pay attention,
And vote in the next election!

Can't help but type again,
We really need a very good president.

Let us hope the '08 election isn't rigged;
If so, truth and justice will be reneged;

If the oldest man and trophy veep win
It’s because he does the most ugly spin

Heaping on everyone plenty of blame
Putting the democratic system to shame

A big change is important, very much due
Before another unscrupulous war does ensue!

As a veteran it will hurt me to elect
A man, Hussein, who gives my flag no respect
Let us stop splitting hairs across party lines.
We must unite together through these tough times.

Not much, but that was what I meant to add yesterday. Sorry i missed it!

Thanks for the b-day wishes. 43!

Some people didn't understand the concept of rhyming but all in all it was a good effort. Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing.

That poem worked really well, interesting to see different kinds of thoughts. I am in the UK but still hearing about the election all the time! Really good idea Lucy!
