Election Reflection


Election Reflection
©2016 Susan Noyes Anderson

Donald J. Trump,
too often a chump.
Both his hair and his skin
are a trifle too thin.

Hillary Clinton,
determined to win one.
Her perception of truth
is a little uncouth.

John or Jane Doe,
nominees we don't know. 
We wish they were running,
and that ain't just funning.

Assignment: Write a clerihew, a comic verse on biographical topics consisting of two couplets and a specific rhyming scheme. (I have combined three clerihews to form one poem.)

Yep, nope and noper are running and frankly I can't believe in this whole country that's the best we've got...that's truly a joke! May the force be with us!

Susan Anderson said...

Yes. We are going to need it!

I shiver of what will happen to the world... I do... This is when the two-party system show when it's weakest.

A very curious election... think everyone is watching with interest.

Each election is getting worse with the rise of the internet news cycle.

Ok it finally worked. Each election rips the bandaid off the chaos of this country. I can't find a sane reason to Vote for either one.

Your clerihew are fun, with a political bite t them; much like my own. You aced the prompt & made some salient points as well.

Great use of the form. This is a weird election cycle, for sure.

Love your sense of humor in the form Sue ~ Am glad that I am not in the USA, smiles.

Chuckles! Wonderful humor on such a serious subject. Things are not so heated up unlike the previous times leading to the debate!

Humour can be helpful in times like these!
So glad I live in Canada...much more freedom in the political world. I fear for what the winds will blow our way. Scary stuff.
