Fair to middlin'
It is not my intention to debate.
I have my frustrations
and Iíll give them to you straight.
The Electoral College failed
and Iíll tell you why.
Its purpose is to protect
an ignorant electorate
from electing a flim-flam candidate.
It has long been debated
that the winner of the popular vote
should hold some Electoral sway.
Especially in this modern day
climate of communications,
voters see and hear enough to take note.
Unfortunately due to political pandering
we have a problem called Gerrymandering.
We carve up our districts in red or blue
to give an advantage to me or you.
They arenít accurate or proportional.
It is just something that they do to win.
Like this voter fraud malarkey
dressed up in a big hoop-dee-do.
A thinly disguised attempt to
make it harder for certain citizens to vote.
The people have taken note
of the whoís behind what and why.
And then we wonder why they donít trust
the system enough to cast a vote
but are quick to give an opinion.
A lot of people called for change.
They thought running the White House
like a business was the way to go.
We didnít need a president,
we needed a CEO.
But what we got
was a horse of a different color,
orange to be exact with a palomino mane.
A show pony for sure,
with limited tricks.
A maverick on the loose,
tweeting just for kicks.
Itíd be different if heíd cop
to what he doesnít know
instead of putting on a show
of Presidential ignorance.
His supporters live under a pile
of number one grade A denial.
God forbid their man
should come under fire
for being an asshat and a liar.
