Apathy, Schmapathy — Dems Still Have To Vote!

Hey Dems, if you’re feeling disappointed, disgusted, and apathetic, you’re not alone. I feel your pain, and so do lots of other Democrats.

The enthusiasm gap between Democrats and Republicans is huge and growing every day. And this could have dire results: Republicans, the very people who got us into this mess, might very well take over both the House and the Senate.

You think you’re miserable now? Just imagine how depressed you’ll feel in November, if Democrats are no-shows at the voting booths, handing both Congressional houses over to the GOP.

That leads me to my latest limerick:

Apathy, Schmapathy — Dems Still Have To Vote!
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The voters are feeling enraged.
Disappointment’s made Dems disengaged.
But a GOP win
Would be tragic — a sin.
So a voting war has to be waged.

  1. Dems were inept, I confess,
    While GOPpers made one hell of a mess
    But if they retake the reins
    Dislocations and pains
    Will be endemic from east to the west.

    The Dems must come out in force
    To keep us on a good course
    The GOP’s ideas
    raise all kinds of fears
    If they win I’ll get on my horse

    And leave this land that I love
    I may go below or above
    to the south or the north
    but I WILL go forth
    and it wouldn’t take much of a shove.

  3. Robert Weller says:

    The demos must come out in force
    And the independents of course
    Or the Gleen Becks will be in charge
    And we’ll be singing a funeral dirge
    As we take the last train to the coast

    Thanks Jay, Jesse, Rob and Robert. I love it when you turn my political posts into limerick-offs. :)
