If You Elect Me President

by Michael


If you elect me President,
I will roll up my sleeves and sweat.
You will see that after my first term
that I was really a safe bet.

I would put on sale, the White House,
because I think itís way too big.
My Cabinet would wear stockings
and I would wear a powdered wig.

I would live in an apartment,
or a rented garage will do.
I got no need for fancy things.
I would give them all back to you.

You can also have Air Force One.
Sort of afraid of flying, here.
Congress would have to get real jobs
and I would laugh while drinking beer.

You keep the limo, Iíll take cabs.
Just put my pretty flags on it.
Iíll stop and give out autographs
and will amaze you with my wit.

I donít need no Secret Service,
canít keep a secret, anyway.
My speechwriterís will be school kids,
cause I like what they got to say.

The IRS?  Yes, history
and with that pledge, I know Iíve won.
Each citizen would own a dog,
so thereíd be no need for a gun.

Discriminate, itís twenty years
and steal, itíll be twenty more.
One of your jobs while in prison,
would be caring for sick and poor.

Men and women in uniform,
would get a raise on their paycheck.
Theyíd make five times what they now get.
Itís only money, what the heck!

Yeah, President Michael Auguste,
will be a name for history.
Get out and vote, punch dangling chads
and Iíll make you real proud of me.

Michael Auguste~

Michael for president!!  Love it!  I'll vote for you if you do something about quality early childhood care and affordability to parents who have to work two jobs.  

This was very clever!  Hugs to you!

YES!!  Michael for President!  Or..in Canada's case Prime Minister...sorry I can't vote for you, not living in your country and not being American and all.  BUT I would if I could...and that's what counts, right?
Good one Michael!

Tell ya what, Noah, you will be in charge of designing my new presidential flag.  The old one is kinda outdated, don't you think?  I want one with a pelican on it. LOL!  Thanks!
