A poem

To the Editor:

To our neighbors on Romney Lane,

Bless your hearts, we feel your pain

We’ve also been beyond dejected

(When Bush the Lesser was selected)

By his daddy’s buddies on the court, then won a second term

That hurt but though we did some private pouting,

We did not engage in drive-by shouting,

Or flip the bird from our car

That’s not the kind of folks we are

So here’s the deal, dear grumpy neighbors—

Obama won despite Rove’s labors

Barack’s the prez – not tycoon Mitt

Your guy lost huge – get over it!

Martin Doerfler
