A personal political cleave poem by Jennifer Semple Siegel,
seeded with Robert Louis Stevenson.
(First appearance: here).
All Along the Campaign Trail!
In the other gardens -- On the endless networks
And all up the vale, -- And all through cyberspace,
From the autumn bonfires -- From Springtime surprises
See the smoke trail! -- Now see how they placed!
Pleasant summer over -- Conventions now passed
And all the summer flowers, -- And all summer potshots,
The red fire blazes, -- O'Biden blazes hot,
The grey smoke towers. -- McPalin does not.
Sing a song of seasons! -- Sing a song of absurdity!
Something bright in all! -- All frightful in Fall!
Flowers in the summer, -- Hucksters all through Summer,
Fires in the fall! -- One winner nabs all!
--Seed Poem: "Autumn Fires," Robert Louis Stevenson--
