Bill, Hillary, Oval Office, Monica, blowhards, relationships, total ironica

Bush Junior, Al Gore, votes count, no more, decider rises, economy tanks

Deficit again, many thanks

Special F’s task forces bidden, Sadaam’s Gomora desert hidden

Junior did, daddy unable, Mohammad sits, Mid-East table

Towers down, David safe, hijacked plane, military strafe

Burnt Bushes, War on Terror, both sides want world fairer

Munitions, decisions, racial divisions

Craig’s Bond, Craigs List, tuitions fail, Old Miss

Ryan drops out, Keyes abound, horrific jangle, cacophonous sound

Illinois Obama kick some butt, landslide Barack senate cut

Barack, Biden, hunters, shoot, troops in, troops out, what point, all moot

Tensions ease, home, abroad; quiet street, just a nod

Ghetto lit up, equality fraud; Hillary, Palin pale-in comparison

Michelle, Barack, certificate skeleton

Sarah groans, Hillary ruins info dump, beat down, Ace of Spades, Donald Trump

Russia, Putin, voter machines, Moscow counting American dreams

Clean power out, Earth’s final hours, orange sheriff’s metal tariffs

Canada, Mexico, yellow horde, common sense completely ignored

CIA, FBI, whistle blowers, everybody lies

Peace marches rioting fires, King Sharpton leads violent liars

Reason no season, scream, yell; black lives matter

Liberty bell cracked in days latter

Caucasian bad, black good, danger abounds down hood

Immigration, deportation, kkk, Michael Brown, Ferguson Missouri

Dead men, dead cops, triggers pull, heart stops

Build wall, Humpty’s fall, Mexican tunnels, City Hall

Nuclear football, Donald Trump, push button, waste this dump

Impeach yes! Impeach no! Don’s bankroll, tons of dough

Wi-Fi modem, all was owed ‘em; dial up gone, world in hand

Young or old, all pound sand; White sheet, black mask, angry pratter

What the heck, does nobody matter???

Internet, Snap-Chat, cell phone, text; Twitter, Facebook, Tender vexed

Thumbs tweet, web eviscerated hateful speak; Sense gone, beat feet

Internet vendetta, video games, RPG phones, thousands of friends virtual homes

Tweet, text, streaming tube, millennials vent, bend over, lube

All day long, solitary room - RPG fantasy, swords, galactic doom

Halo, FallOut, combat, get fat; entitlement, laziness, ingratitude

Ask me not attitude: Relationships via text, porn on-line who needs sex

Joel wondered who started the fire, I just wanna know

Will millennials be wired? Job market gluts video addicts, gaming sluts

We didn’t blow the coals, millenial gen burrowing moles

Entitlement, self absorbption, lackadaisical mental abortion

We didn’t light the fires Billy, but nobody can put them out

    While this so slightly outdated with Bill, Hillary, and Obama it is very real and so true. Fantastic insights. Good job.
