Frustration over

Dragging your ass on board The Loopy Bastard Roller Coaster

For overwhelming depression, it's your face on the poster

 

Dispirited, disillusioned, disheartened, you can't believe the news,

It's the day after, and you've got the knuckle-dragging blues

 

Don't want to, but made to board by some force on the T. V. screen,

This is bad and worse, as bad as depression as you've ever seen

 

The thing lurches up the hill after they've strapped your ass in,

But you're barely aware or even care, that human plunger's going to win

 

About half way up the massive hill is announced a stunning turn around.

Your guy has pulled ahead; seems some votes for him have been found

 

Suddenly, there's new hope; things are looking up and looking rosy.

The coaster's approaching the apex, and you're riding warm and cozy

 

Look at that view, it's glorious, as your mood has become suddenly,

Any moment now they should announce Biden's triumph and victory

 

"Not so fast!" the talking heads screams and the fricking thing heads down,

Free fall, 'screw it all!' Both your mood and the coaster are both down-bound

 

"Let me off!' you demand to deaf ears and closed eyes, back up the hill

For another pass, it steams your ass; of this election shit, you've had your fill!

 

******

 

Today, Biden was finally named President-Elect

Good luck with that--0-for9 so far--unless The Supreme Court ignores the law, make it another 0

Love it Mike. I have to ask, though, what topic will you write about when Trump is finally gone?

That's a good question, one I just don't know; I can't see him going quietly into the sunset--thanks, Penny
