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)

election 2020

You say you don’t like any candidate? –
Bemoan the nation and bewail its fate?
Then look no further than our blackened soul,
For snow’s not found in all the caves of coal.

They’d save the world; make sure the unborn die;
Of sin they laugh, of righteousness they cry.
They crucified Petraeus for his sin,
And let another Clinton go again.
They’d mock a Bush or Quayle where’er they slipped,
But Biden for the prez is well-equipped.
They’d take much from the rich; give to the poor
And middle class must the same thing endure.
For their hypocrisy there is no cure.
