A Backbone for Republicans

A Backbone for Republicans

This gift for you
is much needed
I know
You have been
needing one
since long ago
Wobbling like Jelly
and leaning so
far to the right
I am hoping
with my gift
you would find the fight
It should straighten
your back and
stick out your chest
and give you the nerve
so you can
do your best
It will remind you
of what matters most
Our republic not for sale
Clean out The House
Get rid of the dirt
Or the country will fail

Bjorn is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
and shared with us a Swedish Tradition
of writing a rhyme to accompany a gift
at Christmas. The person receiving the gift
would try and guess what is in the wrapping
from the words of the rhyme. Although common
among family and friends, it is also popular to
write a poem to a famous person who you
might feel is a need of a certain gift.
These rhymes are usually humorous and
sometimes sarcastic!

    Stellar work. I could say the same about our shameful government and supporters here in the UK. Good luck to us all.

      Yes shameful is a good word for both our governments, isn’t it? I feel like the whole world has gone nuts 😔
      I hope you enjoy the holidays, regardless 🙂💕

      They certainly are in the Republican Party here in the US. 😕
