Colored

Belay your boasts
of conjuring ghosts
I’ll take a swipe
at all the hype
and taint your toasts
with one small gripe

there was no test
to prove he’s best
despite his grin
what got him in:
the heart in his chest
or tint of the spin?

It's always been about the spin
Rather than what's right
What bothers most, is not the ghosts
But a tint that's less than white!

Doing what's right
while very commendable
may not always be the best plan
black or white
we need someone dependable
and I hope Barack is that man.


Jo, hi and thanks a lot

Hey Gerald you flatter me with your over assessment of my poetical prowess but I won't argue ;)
