Election Fever

Election Fever



Seems as if you’ve got elections

Our friends in the United States

And here in Blighty your mates

Send you their commiserations

Different country – same dialogue

All fake smiles - - handshakes and hair

Do any of them really care?

Can you stand another monologue?


Politics is a vast sea of debate

And now the U.S.S. Republican sails

Into the sea is thrown the Presidency

Watch as the feeding frenzy begins

Sharks ripping themselves into pieces

Eager for the chance at the prize


The caucuses have begun and you’re welcome

To the hype and the kissing butts and babes

Speeches massacred or delivered with aplomb

By the media savvy - - super-cool candidates


Yes you have my sympathy but on the other hand

Where else such entertainment in such a grandstand?
