Once upon a dreary time,
Those who would be president
Tapped the country’s discontent
To make a brand new paradigm.
Two candidates talked policy,
And with each other disagreed.
Though each, of course, wants to succeed,
Neither descends to lunacy.
Six or eight, though, parody
An elementary schoolyard brawl.
Except for two, they all look small,
And most should be in custody!
