A Poem for All Seasons

The theme of this election year
Was “Victory or Bust!”
I raised my pen for battle
Now I’m crawling in the dust

“What doesn’t kill me makes me strong,”
I’ve scrawled here in the dirt
Well, November may not kill me
But it’s really gonna hurt

I’ve no idea of what went wrong
No notion, not the slimmest
Instead of best and brightest
We got the […]

The siren song of politics
Sings like a serenade
But some can’t shake the feeling
That somehow they’re being played

Saying Clinton was unbeatable
No matter who we’d choose
So the GOP let Trump prevail
So that they wouldn’t lose

Folks I used to trust
Have said the fix was always in
When Trump announced for office
He didn’t really want to win

Candidates and media […]

Why This Year Could Be Very Different

With our cities in convulsions
And economies in tatters
Don’t you think we ought to focus
On the stuff that really matters

For I doubt there’ll be much impact
From the dirt the country learns
If you trade a thousand emails
For some income tax returns

Yes, I guarantee his books are bound
In rich Corinthian leather
While incriminating emails
Have been bleached and lost […]

Debates 2016

There are many epic battles
That have lived in psalm and song
From young David and Goliath
To Godzilla and King Kong

There’s the Bruins and the Trojans
Moriarty versus Holmes
The Knicks against the Celtics
And the critics with my poems

There was Slytherin v. Gryffindor
In battles so fantastic
Samsung versus Apple
And paper versus plastic

But never since the consequence
Of Persian versus Greek
Will […]

8 Weeks, Really?

In 8 weeks on the calendar
Will come the day of choosing
But just between the two of us
It’s all a bit confusing

Out here in California
There are 16 propositions
And advocates are crafting texts
Explaining their positions

And when the postman brings them
You’re gonna find it’s liable
The brochure that contains them
Will be bigger than your bible

Then once we wade through […]

Four Questions

Spring will never come again
No April without pain
Each April the Emancipator’s

Mothers, will there ever
Be a Sunday in December
When you will not
Remember Remember

November never passes
Until I shed a tear
Year after Year after Year

And never in September
Will I look into the sky
Unless I ask the question
Why Why Why Why

Enough About the Emails?

My boss got very angry
You would think it was a crime
He caught me checking emails
On what should have been his dime

Now every time he sees me
He greets me with a glower
Ya’ think he knows I stop
To check my Facebook twice an hour?

I should have spoken up
And told that boss man to relax
To read or […]

Hope Amid Despair

The Republican Establishment
Is lowering the flag
They see the fight as hopeless
And she’s got it in the bag

The polls have been all over
And they’re tailored to deceive
But the ones that show him losing
Are the ones that they believe

Our candidates are cautious
Cause they don’t know what to do
Ask for their opinion
And they’ll answer, “Donald who?”

I hope they […]

Predictions 2

The experts said the Brexit
Would cause a Wall St crash.
I put my dough in stocks
And now I’m rolling in the cash

They said that Jeb was ready
His backing, deep and strong
His war chest was enormous
But I guess they got it wrong

It widely was reported
I remember one slow news day
That Bernie would be finished
By the […]

Old Speak

You could travel ‘round the planet
Like that Spanish guy, Magell-ian*
And you couldn’t find a country
Or a leader more Orwellian.

No we didn’t pay a ransom
We just brokered a release
Just like slavery is freedom
Up is down and war is peace

You can tell a grieving parent
No, we really didn’t desert you
Though it hardly makes a difference
Cause the JV […]
