Blues Have The No Biden Blues

Lost in all the rhetoric slamming Trump and the Bernie supporters preparing to bail
Is the sense by many Democrats that they are putting the wrong person on the legacy saving trail
Joe Biden may not be perfect and he has entertained us with his many gaffs
But he has integrity, honesty, likability and from time to time makes us laugh
Touched by a tragedy that killed his daughter and wife
Armed with his faith he managed to survive and keep on with his life
Watching his speech and knowing that Hillary as a candidate has so much baggage that is flawed
Many a Blue are bemoaning the fact that because of his son’s death from a run he had to withdraw
Hillary is the Austria-Hungary equivalent of Germany’s ally in World War I
A corpse of a candidate that voters Reds and Indies detest and Bernie Blues will shun
The rust belt Blues that are streaming over to Trump
Means that Obama’s cherished legacy is heading for the dump
Biden would have Trump’s Blue collar appeal train derailed
Hillary’s appeal to Bernie supporters is doomed to fail
In an election where every vote count, playing the race card and gender card ad nauseam will not tip the scales
No matter how great Hillary’s speech or Chelsea’s intro, can’t create a record or erase or 4 decades of deception and a belief she belongs in jail.
