Envy…A Limerick

Donald and Hillary jealously play the game

Polls say people dislike them just about the same

I don’t envy their chosen path

The incurring of everyone’s wrath

While working hard to avoid any blame…

    1. You know I’m not political, but I’m so disgustingly annoyed with the choices. And then I saw the poll that said people dislike them equally…

      1. Well, internationally speaking, there’s no “choice”, however much you may have to hold your nose in the voting booth…

      2. I know, it seems like we haven’t had many choices for awhile now. Not that individuals voting for the presidency means much. We’d have to start with Congress and make many changes there, IMHO…

      3. It’s hard to know where to begin, as one individual against a whole system based on protected interests, with deep pockets… I think this is why many simply disengage, and understandably so
