One Vote

He was elected by just one vote
Democracy they say had truly spoke,
Now he is attacking the middle class and the unhealthy
While helping and protecting, the greedy and the wealthy,
He is making a mockery of our once great nation
We are now becoming a diverse and bigoted population,
All that he cares about is making himself richer
Now churches can speak for him, said a preacher,
But, if you talk about him you are stupid and just a liar
If you want to preach, do it to the choir,
But, remember it was that one vote that got him elected
Now in Hell for him there is a statue erected,
He has leaked our secrets to our enemies and our foe
Now all that our patriots knew and died for, they now know,
A hundred years from now in history classes students will be devoted
In shame will they think, "For him did my ancestors actually voted? "

Randy, He was elected by just one vote Democracy they say had truly spoke? You've got to be kidding. A literate person would know to write spoken. Now all that our patriots knew and died for, they now know, ? Really? That's barely English. Whatever you studied in Scotland, it wasn't poetry.
It is frightening that DT has this power. Like a boy with a new toy.
Randy, I like your sentiments, but too many usage errors and most of all, a sing-songy element from the rhymes and attempts at meter. This kind of formal poetry died many years ago. If you want to become a better poet, immerse yourself in good contemporary poetry. You'll improve. Check out my new website: jeffersoncarterverse.com Let me know how you like it. Yrs, JC
