                    The Presidential vote’s but days away
                    With Trump and Clinton now in a dead heat,
                    And no one’s eager for election day,
                    Most wishing someone else would claim the seat.

                    These two contenders have revealed their flaws,
                    Making us eager for another slate,
                    If only such a way were in our laws,
                    So we might have a President who’s great.

                    When world events arrive that overwhelm
                    Stability and sanity and threaten all,
                    We need someone of stature at the helm,
                    Not one whose ego’s destined for a fall.

                         If only we’d a Franklin Roosevelt,
                         Instead of this bad hand that we’ve been dealt.
