freestyle sonnet #049: EIGHTEEN WEEKS 'TIL THE MUCH-BALLYHOOED AMERICAN ELECTION OF PRESIDENT 2016

Clinton co-opting Sanders support with well-thunk
Senator Warren, who seems bit too happy to
suddenly be spotlighted; egos become drunk
with historical power's potential. States blue

stay blue; states red remain red. Trump still remains Trump -
political dumpster fire, yet many folks still
ready to burn all bridges; frustration's quick jump
into "fuck it". Don't underestimate the will

of "fuck it" demographic. It may seem like coast
to victory for Clinton from both coasts, but mass
of flyover country's passed over people host
much resentment for establishment, whether ass

or elephant. But inelegant bridge burning
through ballot box won't keep our small worlds from turning.
