A Gal Named Hillary

There now is a gal named Hillary,

Who gives many gals a thrill-ary.

She's for equal pay,

As you'll hear her say,

To have the same perks as Billy Ray...

Source

Themes & Dreams

We've now seen her schemes

for the job of her dreams:

Equal pay, every day, even when sick,

But that's not the real trick,

Is she dreaming bipartisan dreams?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Experienced she is,

compared quite well to his.

To immigration reform

she appears to be warm,

all flavor or is there some fizz?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

She's traveled the world,

and brickbats she's hurled,

while now about some

she's perfectly mum,

such as consulate flags fully furled.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

She's traveled the States

from Maine to Bill Gates,

fund raising, speech making

donations she's raking,

her calendar crowded with dates.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

What still remains to be seen?

Can she like a bee be Queen,

With a consort all warm and toasty,

and make deals with Nancy Pelosi,

Of elephants she's not too keen.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

So one day we'll remember,

a year from November,

(when she lets her hair be grey,

and with sadness we send her away)

historians will her campaign dismember.

      I LOVE Hillary but enjoyed your poem regardless.

      I fear Hillary will be voted in simply because she's a woman. I wish that weren't going to be the case. I'd like a much, MUCH better woman (maybe one that isn't evil) to be the first female POTUS!

      Thank you for sharing such a creative piece of writing. I don't know what will happen for the next Presidential election; I wouldn't even begin to try to figure out how it will all work out. The only thing I know is that I will be holding our country in the Light, praying for the best possible outcome for our highest good. Blessings!

      FlourishAnyway - Everyone needs a champion. She is one for many. Her "I Am Running Speech" was a class act of appealing to every voter sector (as candidates must do.) I don't see her fashioning a perfect USA, and I have seen her when she was contentious, as if special rules applied just to her. That bodes ill for breaking gridlock in Washington, DC. If Americans have grown distrustful of politicians, she deserves a good, careful, sustained looking over in the next 17 months. That's time enough for serious voters, be they Democrats, Republicans, or Independents, to draw their own conclusions about whether or not she should go down in history as the first of many American women to be elected president, and to be the best choice of all today's outstanding women to lead America....not just the most visible.

      I too will be reading her speeches and watching her body language. I want to see her thinking on her feet, how good she is at accepting good advice, her real attitude toward our military and civil servants, how open she is to answering tough questions directly, and whether or not I want her finger for the doomsday button, if it ever needs to be pushed.

      There is time enough to find my answers for those concerns.

      kbdressman - You know not to judge lest you be judged. God decides the sheep and the goats, and no one mortal is a finished being yet.

      I agree that it would be lousey voting if anyone votes for her just because she is a woman, or for a male opponenet just because he is a man; or votes against Hillary just because she is a woman, or votes against a man just because he isn't a woman.

      There is time enough to vote for the best person, regardless of sex, to lead this country

      Kathleen Kerswig - As mentioned above, there is time enough to hold each candidate up to that Light and make a righteous choice.

      It is said, we get the government we deserve. I pray a bit, that this isn't it.

      dahoglund - We need peace makers for our candidates, so that whoever wins, they can get this country and its government back to work on the very real issues that need cooperation and resolution.

      I'm not into American politics and think that they influence and affect Britain far too much but I like your poem; always great to have a go at the politicians! I find none appeal to me these days, in any country. There is none whom I would trust.

      aviannovice - And you are not one easily scared!

      annart - Two different systems ours, but we drew a lot from yours, and we apparently also have many of the same problems. Is there a better system anywhere? Ours may well be the longest enduring, but we need a new constitutional convention to straighten out a group of provisions we are no longer content with.

      Ann Carr 23 months ago from SW England

      The system's probably ok; it's those that are so-called implementing it who are the problem. We don't have a written constitution so that makes it easier for them to bend I guess!
