This is from Faye Bruno of Oakland, whom I interviewed a few minutes ago for my previous post…
There is something I must tell that I no longer can contain
Please prepare yourself to hear it, what it is might cause you pain
When I first heard all about it I thought, “They must be insane!”
But Republicans have nominated Palin and McCain!
Could this be, I asked myself, as incredulity took hold
That we’re looking to a guy at least a hundred-ten years old?
And to back him up, a calculating female from the cold?
Have we really fallen this far from America, the bold?
These uneducated morons are the best we have to show?
They who abnegated earmarks, but expected quid pro quo?
Just in case the worst should happen, I have planned a good heave ho;
I’ve a passport, I’ve a ticket, I am packed and good to go!
Looks as if it won’t come to that, Faye.
