Epic Fail

A Poem by Baby Ricochet
"

My first write in over a year. For those of you who don't know my shtick I write in plain language with a lot of swearing thrown in so any yokel can understand it. I'm not much for subtleties.

"
I swear I heard all this before
I did a double take
You let it slip right through your grasp 
That's some fucked up mistake 

Plagiarizing your enemy 
Whom you claim corrupt
I gotta tell ya pookey bear 
That couldn't be more fucked 

Then pretend it didn't happen 
Oh that worked out just great 
You gave the enemy ammo 
served on a silver plate 

There's people out there hard at work 
They're chomping at the bit 
Waiting for you to f**k s**t up 
Then bury you with it 

These people are professionals 
At slinging all the mud 
The media's not too keen on you 
They want to see your blood

Your crew's a pack of amateurs 
Your strategy's a joke  
Keep playing to the stupid folk 
With hatreds you provoke

BENGAZI! BENGAZI! BENGAZI! 
The same old email line  
A broken record in my ear 
You just sound asinine

You're playing in the big leagues now 
The fix it could be in
My confidence is negative 
You're never gonna win

So was her speech writer a "closet" Dem or what? None of the big guys write their own speeches afterall. How did the guy find the thing to copy from - without intent? Someone had to do some sort of Search and those are reviewable EVEN if you delete it from the local machine. Sounds sort of planned somehow - follow the money.

Yes, Yes, Yes, that was one of the most laughable attempts by Trump's people to gather support, good piece.

Oh it's going to get much worse. Thanks Thomas
I like your style a lot. I'm into metaphors and symbolism generally speaking, but I do love a clear, direct, well-delivered message.

I swear, everything I've read on this year's election has been pretty forgettable . . . UNTIL NOW! Finally, finally, finally, someone has written something truly remarkable about a campaign that's short on remarkable aspects. I like that you've written this without a partisan slant, it could be that you are on either side, & your words ring true like a diamond reflects rainbow prisms all around. This goes so much further than any of the hoards of political commentators tried to do during the controversy. You've touched on the parts that are most unbelievable in their ridiculousness. Esp: "Plagiarizing your enemy whom you claim corrupt" . . . and stanzas 4, 5, & 6, which are so so so spot-on & well-stated.

I'm on Bernie's side. Thanks for the review barley girl. I appreciate your input.
Am an interested Brit, so forgive me intruding. Have read your two poems, both candidates treated to your impeccable side swipes, written maybe tongue in cheek or knife in fist.. whichever.. candid, say it how you think phrasing.

To be honest, considering the greatness of your country.. how come two people like that are standing? Doubt there's a politician in this world who's pure as snow. But, are your two the best available? Or. is it that a wise man, able to choose his or her advisers and back up.. won't step forward cos is too intelligent/logical/experienced and mostly, ETHICAL as can be for the job?

Guess my questions, thoughts, might well apply to most countries... like it or not we're all stnading on the edge of a global slip off the edge for as long as we fail to work together.. not gonna happen though, is it!!

Thanks for opening a can of worms, you've wiggled us into a great debate!

A hard election my friend. Two disliked people running. Least disliked will win. I'm confuse. They isn't no logical candidate anywhere? Thank you for sharing your words and thoughts.

You are welcome my friend.
No doubt there might have been some shenanigans here, but that means you didn't hire trustworthy people, now doesn't it? Also, if you have anything relevant to say, your speech writers collab with you to make your OWN words great. She obviously doesn't have anything that doesn't come out of a can to say. I do not envy you your choice in the States this election, but no one is playing any cleaner than anyone else ... Great political poem here.

Lol. It's good to be Canadian and just watch it all unfold. I do wonder how a professional speech writer could pull that move. Fishy. Good to see you back!
