A Poem - For All Their Goods And Plenty (A Political Forecast)

Just for fun?

Real talent and goodness are sometimes not enough.

Where will they "spend" Christmas?



They both have goods a plenty,

They both seem like decent guys.

But, by December 20,

One's in for his sad surprise.


Elections will have ended.

Christmas will be drawing near.

The one who won can fly tended.

"Hawaii's trip's nothing, dear."


For the loser: Chicago's,

Or Boston's winter so drear.

While waves, and soft hulas sway.

It's winners taxpayers pay.


Taxpayers still can save him,

And save on their money, too;

Can have chosen "Not Boston!"

For he'd stay right here with you!


[And probably not cash his salary either!]

Excellent as usual prespycacius, great hub and very thought provoking as well as amusing and playful. Voted up!

Mhatter99 : I thought Michelle Obama gave a great speech about "her man" and I'm glad she liked their life in Chicago and DC. Chances are they will be one place or the other next January.

eHealer : The intended Limerick turned into a poem after the Title sat with unfinished text for about a week! That's probably how the "amusing" snuck into something so serious to play with.

I think we know who all this refers to.

How did you guess? Obama and Romney, of course.

Interesting way of putting it but there must be a loser. However it will be a very rich loser anyway. I still have no idea who to vote for? Right now I'm not happy about anybody and anything going on.
