Voter Disgust At All Time High

Vice President Garner once said the vice presidency was not worth a warm bucket of spit
As the personal demeaning attacks increase and never seem to quit
With each insult a growing schism and deepening and wider divide
Whoever wins has not a snowball’s chance in hell to put this country on a unifying ride
The Blues tout that Hillary wants to represent and unify Independents, Reds and Blues
While screeching out Trump’s deplorables’ misogynist, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic views
She makes a mockery of Michelle’s “when they go low we go high”
More like when they go low,we go lower
Our movement to recovery and issue solving becomes slower and slower
Any sense of talk of issues or a modicum of civility or rational thought deny
Add to that the allegations that Trump is not fit to have access to the nuclear codes
Her burden of trying to govern or even attempt to unify becomes an impossible load
Although Trump is right to point out the criminality of her server and the scandal of pay to play
Threatening lawsuits on his alleged victims, insulting women, Mexicans, a Gold Star family while from the Holy Grail of jobs stray
Polarizes this nation into two bitter camps like tectonic plates pushing with all their might but in stress building lock
Whether Hillary is indicted or not or impeached,  we are facing as long as she is in office years of gridlock
Trump will face the same from his own party and Blues voting as one in a solid bloc
No mandate for either nothing but partisan one after another ununifying shocks
No wonder the public is filled with disgust with no end to growingancor in sight
No matter who wins not much elation but rather pity for who is unlucky enough to win on election night
