Joyce Meyer says vote for George

Return our values Christian forge

Bill, Hillary, Oval Office, Monica

Blowhards, relationships, Oval ironica

Bush Junior, Al Gore, votes count, no more

Decider rises, economy tanks

Deficit again, many thanks

Special F’s task forces bidden

Sadaam’s Gomora desert hidden

Junior did, daddy unable

Mohammad al-Jabiri Mid-East table



Towers down, David safe

Hijacked plane, military strafe

9-11 lives in memory burnt

America's complacence irreparably hurt

George Walker, War on Terror

Both sides want world fairer

Munitions, decisions, racial divisions

Craig’s Bond, Craigs List

Tuitions fail, Old Miss



We didn’t blow the coals

Millenial gen burrowing moles

Entitlement, self absorbption

Lackadaisical mental abortion

We didn’t spark the flames

Nobody can put them out

Internet abuzz, Avatar fuzz

Political unrest, Viper’s nest

Black versus white

All the rest



Ryan drops out, Keyes abound

Horrific jangle, cacophonous sound

Illinois Obama kick some butt

Landslide Barack Senate cut

History made 2008

African American guides our fate

Newly enacted ObamaCare

Hospitals insurance, medical scare

Caucasians not worried about leader in black

Not from whites came most the flack



Barack, Biden, hunters, shoot

Troops in … troops out…

What point? All moot

Tensions ease, home, abroad

Quiet street, just a nod

Ghetto lit up, equality fraud

Hillary, Palin. pale-in comparison

Michelle, Barack, certificate skeleton

Sarah groans as Hillary ruins info dump

Beat down, Ace of Spades, Donald Trump

Russia, Putin, voter machines

Moscow counting American dreams



We didn’t blow the coals

Millenial gen burrowing moles

Entitlement, self absorbption

Lackadaisical mental abortion

We didn’t spark the flames

Nobody can put them out

Internet abuzz, Avatar fuzz

Political unrest, Viper’s nest

Black versus white

All the rest



Jesse Jackson church and state

Return thine pew, to the people our fate

Peace marches rioting fires

King Sharpton leads violent liars

Reason no season, scream, yell

Black lives matter

Liberty bell cracked days latter

Caucasian bad, black good

Danger abounds down ‘hood

Immigration, deportation, kkk

Michael Brown, Ferguson Missouri

Dead men

Dead cops

Triggers pull, heart stops

Drugs, guns, immigration reform

No papers go back home

Neighbor south no pay

Border not orange way

Build wall, Humpty’s fall

Mexican tunnels, City Hall



Nuclear football, Donald Trump

Push button, waste this dump

Greta Thurnbeg Donald’s thorn

Though 2003 child was born

Girl argues with common sense

Words of intelligence truly not minced

Impeach yes! Impeach no!

Don’s bankroll, tons of dough

Clean power out, Earth’s final hours

Orange sheriff’S metal tariffs

North Korean atomic crisis

Kim Jong Un volatile as Isis

Canada, Mexico, yellow horde

Common sense completely ignored

Donald’s still a Wall Street lord

CIA, FBI, whistle blowers, everybody lies

Congress, Senate, public sighs



We didn’t blow the coals

Millenial gen burrowing moles

Entitlement, self absorbption

Lackadaisical mental abortion

We didn’t spark the flames

Nobody can put them out

Internet abuzz, Avatar fuzz

Political unrest, Viper’s nest

Black versus white

All the rest



Wi-Fi modem, all was owed ‘em

Dial up gone, world in hand

Young or old, all pound sand

White sheet, black mask, angry pratter

What the heck, does nobody matter???

Internet, Snap-Chat, cell phone, text

Twitter, Facebook, Tender vexed

Ducks fly, thumbs tweet

Web eviscerated by hateful speak

Sense gone, beat feet

Internet vendetta, video games, RPG phones

Thousands of friends in virtual homes

Tweet, text, streaming tube

Millennials vent, bend over, lube



Gay pride up, gay bashing lowers

Same sex marriages nobody glowers

Acceptance is supposedly now a norm

Boys kiss boys in college dorm

All day long, solitary room

Rpg fantasy, swords, galactic doom

Halo, FallOut, combat, get fat

Entitlement, laziness, ingratitude

Ask me not attitude

Relationships via text

Porn on-line who needs sex

Rainbows fly proud across the land

Not all amongst like that stand

Violence still runs amok

Guns are cheap, ammo in stock

Mass shooting clubs, mass shooting schools

Psychotic hypocritical well-armed fools



We didn’t blow the coals

Millenial gen burrowing moles

Entitlement, self absorption

Lackadaisical mental abortion

We didn’t spark the flames

Nobody can put them out



Internet abuzz, Avatar fuzz

Political unrest, viper’s nest

Black or white, all the rest

Joel wondered who started the fire

I just wanna know

Will millennials be wired?

Job market gluts

Video addicts, gaming sluts



We didn’t blow the coals

Millenial gen burrowing moles

Entitlement, self absorbption

Lackadaisical mental abortion

We didn’t light the fires Billy

Nobody can put them out



Internet abuzz, Avatar fuzz

Political unrest, Viper’s nest

Black or white, All the rest
