Ratchet Down the Rhetoric!

The rhetoric against Trump is growing at hyper speed
More and more not of discourse but for calls for violence to heed
Are there not any adults left in the party of the Blues?
Or do we have to endure Schumer’s minions for two more years as their obstructions grew?
The Senate used to be an august,  deliberative body of great renown
Watching the Blues boycott hearings makes them appear as spoiled clowns
To attack a judicial candidate of stellar integrity, credentials and reputation
When only ten years ago on appointment to an appellate court he received a unanimous yeas affirmation
Because the Reds refusal to hold hearings in the waning pre election months of Obama’s last term
Is a petty tit for tit beneath the dignity of the Senate, an act that should give even the Blues great concern
When children throw temper tantrums, parents give them a time out
Time for the Blues and Reds to together take that route
Deep breaths, lower the rhetoric, lower the personal attacks
Reds and Blues have to find common ground if we are ever going to get this nation again on track
