Catainia In Quest For D.C. Mayor--Political Don Quixote?

The Washington D.C. race for mayor would put any Red into deep despair
The city is 76 percent Blue; any Red would have to climb a great many hurdles and stairs
But in the heart of politicians for reason that logic defies
There is always the ego and the thirst for power that urges one to try
Catania a former Red but now an Indy and openly gay
Even though he is white he is running hard to get the black vote to come his way
His foe Muriel Bowser who is Blue and black has a 17 point lead
If you think the feds are dysfunctional, the District has gone to total seed
Official after official do not serve out their terms
Stealing and corruption are crimes is a lesson they seem not to learn
With the public schools at the very bottom of nation’s achievement test
A change in the reflex and habit of electing Blues is great to suggest
Catania after the sorry state of felons in office would be a welcome change
With no Obama on the ballot, low Blue turnout a Catania upset might be arranged
