There is an adage that a picture is worth more than a thousand words
Proved true more so than ever as Amy Klobuchar candidacy was heard
Running on issues near and dear to the left and progressive hearts
Only problem was that yesterday the optics were doomed from the start
She’s standing on a platform talking about the need to fight climate change
While heaping on Trump’s policies as being deranged
Shivering out in the freezing cold on an icy platform
While a snowy blizzard is quickly starting to form
Instead of her moment in the electoral sun
She is trying to avoid having to into a warm room run
Covered like a snow person in the falling snow
An omen for how climate change as an issue may go?
Is it time for the candidacy of gaffer Uncle Joe?
Or Howard Schultz who will the need to end two party gridlock crow?
Hold on to your seats as this will be an awesome ride
Thankfully AOC will not be 35 as she might have the track inside
