I’ve come up for air and have looked all around,
But politics sends me right back underground.
With Ayotte ahead in the polls,
And Snowe keeping the rich on the dole,
It’s no wonder that football and baseball would take
My eyes away from these huge and looming mistakes.
Much better to focus on Halliday, Oswalt and Vick
Than to let politics leave my heart hurting and sick.
Of course Stewart’s rally still gives a small glimpse
Of the possibility of sanity in a world lacking sense
But I fear the momentum is not on his side
And like ’94 we’re in for a damn bumpy ride.
It feels like most voters have lost their minds.
Wish they’d vote with their brains and not their behinds.
