Ode to Election 2004

+Hello Red state, Hello Blue state (A Letter From Camp, by Young Dave with fond acknowledgment to Allan Sherman)

Hello Red state, hello Blue state,
Some feel just fine, some don’t feel great.
Some own small caps, some own hi-tech,
One is making all-time highs and one’s a train wreck.
Some went voting for John Kerry.
‘Bout the future, they did worry.
Others voted for George Dubya.
Claiming he had been anointed from above, yeah.

Stem cell pros hate soccer mothers,
And the rest just hate the others.
We can’t seem to find a middle,
Where is Nero now? We need someone to fiddle.

The fear-mongers want to scare ya,
Does Al-Qaeda have malaria?
Is there someone stout and hardy.
With the stones to organize a new third party?

Where’s your dough, oh Red state, Blue state?
Where’s your dough? Division I hate,
Is it caused by the stock market, where
For some, it’s really been a bear?
Where’s your dough? Invested in the hot small caps?
Or hi-techs that have taken craps?
Has your wealth slipped away?
What’s happened with your 4-0-1-k?

Blue state dearest, Red state honey,
Does it just come down to money?
All your values, would you miss them?
If your broker’s brilliance made you want to kiss him?
Wait a minute, who are they hailing?
Not snowboarding, he’s not sailing.
Action hero, is that better?
Red state, Blue state, would you go for Schwarzenegger?!

Thank you Young Dave, for once again gracing my humble blog with your creative genius!

(Does this mean I get to take the rest of the day off?)

Oh How Funny! I always loved Alan Sherman (and I'm old enough to remember him when he was on television).

Cute, Dave.

Priceless, I hate to admit how old I am, but Allan Sherman isn't that much older. Can't believe Kerry thinks Bin Ladin bagged him, complete lack of introspect about his character flaws.

Thought I'd post my link here to the Ode to the Red State (http://www.webspawner.com/users/verseman/index.html) which I wrote this year along with the many other odes people were motivated to write this year. I believe my ode is the only posted ode specifically addressed to the Red State. I'm glad to see so many other folks standing up and being counted in recognizing the embryonic fascism sprouting up in American politics -- with much bolder rhetoric in some cases than mine. This country is really going to have to rediscover the courage of voting conscience along with having the ballot box. I'm confident the election will come that will cause "smiles to be real" again.
