Well, they made us write poems in English class recently, and being the political events addict that I am, I wrote a funny political poem. Enjoy.

Democratic Candidato en Staccato
By George I.

Once upon a time there was a boy named Bush
His Dad had an oil field
But the son was in no rush
To reach his birthright
Go to Yale and become President
Not by the popular vote
But the winner was evident
So said Judge Rehnquist

Lo and behold, three years passed
The country was in turmoil
War and Terror
Forget the Peace
This ain’t no Tolstoy
Going after Saddam and Bin Laden
While Kim Jong il munched his Ramen
So our great leader said WMD
And off we went

Reborn was Patriotism
It was the true time to feel like an American
A year from which we stood shyly
No weapon was found
Not even a missile
Or plutonium wizzle
Torches ablaze, Democrats rang
The Doorbell of the campaign house
04’ was painted on the door
And it was their time to fight for the White House
An election war

First there was Dean,
the left wing lefty
He was so popular
His campaign donations were hefty
And then arrived seven others
Kucinich
Who ate mucho spinach
Sharpton
Who lived in a bourgeois reverend’s apartment
Clark
Who was out of the political ball park
Gephardt
Who gave the unions their part
Graham
Who was as old as green eggs and ham
Brown
The motherly voice
That acted pro choice
Lieberman
Who needed to chill out on conservatism and get a tan
Edwards
Who just pretty please wanted to play nice
And then came the storm
One “specially interested” Senator came into the fray
John Kerry
A small time player
Who months earlier did not have a prayer

Meanwhile, Dean got mad
He had spent all his moneys
And the voters picked Kerry
Bye bye to the Vermont Governor’s honeys

Now Dean was not happy,
He became mean
Scared all the little children,
In one werewolf-like scream
And that was the end of the $40 million wonder
Dean’s reign was over

Kerry was on fire
Saying that the President conspired
To be AWOL from National Guard Duty

The White House screamed: “Liar!!”

And that’s how it started, the Great 04’ race
Muckraking and lobbyists
Politicians with untruthful tastes

And what of Edwards,
the good little boy from NC?
Well, for him it probably isn’t meant to be
Possibly VP
Or an early retiree

But we don’t know yet
Republican or Democrat?
The votes are not set
It is all in your hands, dear American citizen
Now is the time to decide,
And elect your President

It's about time someone with political interests speaks up! I opened a Who Would You Vote for President thread and it pretty much died. :-D

I too am a politics addict.

Nice poem though! Quite funny.
