The Red, White, and Blue

The Red, White, and Blue

*

Slow down, slow down,

You’re moving too fast.

You’ll pass out, Man!

Your face is beet-red!

Your shirt, dripping sweat.

You’ve done all you can.

*

One block to go…

I can make, I know.

Don’t slow me down.

The folks need to know,

About the Iowa sham,

Iowa ‘Caucus’, by damn.

*

So, what’s in the box?

Why such a rush?

They’ve waited all night,

And, another day.

Why so urgent,

Mighty Mite?

*

The box carries evidence

That the new voting system,

From a well-known source,

Is Bogus and fraud,

Developed from bigotry,

Hatred and bedlam sought.

*

So, why is it you, Sam,

Delivering this sad news?

Will you not be vilified?

Mocked by the Press?

Why must it be you, Sam?

To convey this partisan-mess?

*

Why should it not be me?

A patriot, loyal and true,

I will strive forever to

Give what is mine to give

To this great Republic I

Love: the red, white, and blue.

*

Let it then be recorded here

Along Constitution Avenue

Where the record will be

‘Most  glorified by your haste,

 Sam, a  man motivated by love

Of country and his Faith’.

*

No glory need be given any man

Acting with the love and pride

of his Country, his deed only

To right the ‘Ship of State’

And its fundamental belief

That all people are created equal.
