Countdown

 

The clocks they are now counting down to find who gets first place,

in this farcical performance of a presidential race.

 

The hands are moving round the dial, the numbers are still ticking,

and still there’s no end to arguments the candidates are picking.

 

At just a hint of scandal, the hounds will scent and then give chase,

the media pack will pick it up and intensify the pace.

 

Has there ever been a campaign trail where the tactics were so crude,

where fighting dirty is thenorm and rationality won’t intrude?

 

The circus of the media is just waiting to march in,

with their suppositions shown as facts that are really very thin.

 

Things have become so hostile, so much tension turned to hate,

Feelings pushed and prodded, all sensation to inflate.

 

And when the race is over, a new president been sworn in

will things then just settle down or will the insanity then begin?

 

The entire world is waiting but this is only just one strand

where humanity is falling right apart as things get out of hand.
