It seems that from the taller trees
Comes presidential timber.
Israel’s first king stood out –
‘Twas Saul, if you remember.

There’s been a run of six foot men
This nation has elected.
If we cannot look up to some,
Those are the ones rejected.

It seems that female chances, then,
Of winning are quite narrow
Since few of them are ostrich tall
And closer to a sparrow.

And same for that short fellow who
Has/spends a lot of money.
If he wore elevator shoes,
His outcome might be sunny.

He might as well go home, recline,
Light cigars with his dollars.
He has to come up taller than
The tall ones’ necks and collars.

As each aspirant’s views are scanned,
Subconsciously we measure
How far into the clouds he stands
To find a redwood treasure.

So looking up to candidates
Is double in its senses.
To come up short in either one
Has highest consequences.

King Saul of Israel – “he was taller than any of the people
from his shoulders upward” (I Sam.10:23)

Political! Impeach him, they’re saying
Including four senators staying
To vote to remove
The one they reprove,
Against whom they’re running and naying.

Hypocrisy much? More than a mere touch.
For Dems, though, their politics is such.
For three years they plotted,
By their hate besotted.
Their anger at losing remains much.

You Must Be Nuts

Yes, I will
Swing for my supper.
But what’s next?

——————–

LETTER, sound

Aging, will
Generation X
Become Yz?

In Each Election

What matters? –
Murder (abortion);
Sodom’s sin.
