How odd a scandal-free president,
Who crushed the Orange Deviant
With a seven million vote accent,
Endures such low popular consent.
With Biden approval in the tank,
His PR handlers deserve the yank;
The Mid-term makes all too clear
Winners need vision to domineer.
How lame Yank “exceptionalism”
When nearly all want core revisions.
Could not pitching systemic reform
Fuel a progressive firestorm?
While off-shore mayhem remains perverse,
Stateside, Biden could be far worse.
Decent bills get passed, crises reduced,
Zero crimes against the state induced.
And yet Democratic outreach stinks,
One reason its power is jinxed;
Still, Biden’s “presidential” status quo
Humiliates Trump’s loser sh-tshow.
Lost winnable races should educate –
But Trump’s addicted to rage and hate.
Rethugs corrupt politics as war,
Sucker punching with doom, gloom and gore.
The right’s “vision” will never cohere,
Because reality won’t disappear,
Parading showmen “to entertain”
And hide its ugly, vicious campaign.
Sleazy arm-twisting sells the brand –
Bad “faith” envenoms the heartland;
Demonizing the voting booth,
A defamation, where still lives truth.
That hands Democrats splendid chances,
To puncture terror with sharpened lances;
The left furnishes systemic vision –
Primed to impact the next collision.
