As we near this election date
The rhetoric’s sure to nauseate.
Pundits’ll scream and act irate
Spewing their vitriolic hate
Convincing us the hour’s late;
“Barbarians are at the gate!”
This corruption of the third estate
Will never keep this nation great.
Demagogues and Politicians,
Pay attention to your positions.
Yelling loudly and with conviction
Will not make a fact from fiction.
And what you risk in the next election
Is a widespread citizens’ defection.
