"Meet the new day, same as the old day!"

This is a collaboration between Huulabaloo22 and myself:


The day after the election, we'll still be treated to the thrilling sight,

and sounds, of The D-Man, 'cause he'll not just fade into that good night

if he loses, no, he's hooked on the spotlight, and the media's wearing knee pads.

and are thrilled to give it to him, no, we're gonna be booted in the 'nads,

by having to watch him on his forced-on-us hatred platform.

from which he'll lie, lie, lie, lie some more, and misinform

 what is apparently an all-too-willing-to-believe-him hardcore few,

who won't listen to reason, or trust easily-verifiable fact, so we're screwed!

No, he’s not going to accept defeat, won’t take it laying down,

he’ll be shouting ‘Foul’ and ‘It’s a fix’ just like some deranged clown.

He has to be the winner or else he’ll just lose face;

no, that won’t be the end of it if he doesn't get first place.

An absolute demolishing would not change his mind,

he’ll be bringing out his minions for discrepancies to find,

and, hey, if they cannot find some, there’s sure to be debate

and things will get too heated about the suspicions they’ll create.

No, on the day after, the fighting is sure to carry on,

unless the unthinkable happens and there is a President Don.
