Di Blasio Hits Reality Wall And Quits

In politics it seems that the taller the candidate is the harder he or she falls
That moment when reality and lack of donors trumps ego and campaign in a mortal stall
Of all the Blue candidates to replace Trump di Blasio had to be the biggest joke
The closest likeness to an image of a hopeless Don Quixote quest to evoke
A man whose ego was so big he merited on his failed race little pity
A man who was a disaster as a mayor of New York City
A lesson to us all that ego is a reason defying powerful force
No matter the number of polls they could not alter his course
A tall man with no ideas or ideas to meet with voter disdain
Such an ego to believe that voters could from supporting him not abstain
He wins the prize of the most pronounced popinjay
To have the temerity to pronounce it was not his time today
No pity for him only for the residents of the Big Apple who will now suffer his absence from the campaign trail
Now back in Mayor’s Mansion with policies especially in dealing with police and crime doomed to fail
Goodbye and good riddance to a politician whose only attribute was his height
And hope unlike another failure Hillary Clinton he quickly fades away out of the political limelight
