Radical rabbits jump the stump
and conservatives with one big jump,
but they’ve been known to butt and bump
such right wing radicals as Trump.
This right wing radical, slightly crazy,
seems to leave some voters hazy
and spin their judgement upsy-daisy,
making their thinking super lazy.
Radicals aren’t all on the left.
Extreme’s the warp but not the weft.
One loose of tongue and good at theft
might leave our country most bereft.
If conservative’s your bent,
when you hear him spew and vent,
would you wish him to be sent
to D.C. as your president?
Radical’s found on either side––
right and left of where you bide.
Please cast your vote for a bonafide
choice that is not suicide!
Radical rabbits may be slightly
more to the left than you deem rightly.
Still their motives shine out brightly
and they are not as unsightly!!!
Yes, you guessed it. The prompt today was “Radical.” The electricity went out as I was writing this so I hurried to get it posted. Wish I’d had a bit more time for rewriting and perhaps I’ll do so later, especially for that last line which only scans if you read it as intended––with the stress on “they, not, as and sight!” Hope to find a better solution when the lights come back!!!
