Sonnet: The Election Was Rigged!
by John Kendall Hawkins
Trump's 2016 win was jerryrigged
by disenfranchisement, votes not counted:
Blacks, Latinos, young Lefties -- Repugs mounted
a campaign to see democracy pigged.
Voter fraud is what the GOP does:
Carter, Gore, Kerry, Clinton -- all were deked
by well-hung chads, theft, or late 'scandals' leaked
by an all-to-willing bent-over Press.
And Joe Biden almost went the same way,
but Covid forced their hand and millions more
than usual mailed in votes, to ensure
all votes got counted on election day.
Now it's back to normal corporate smiles,
duelling banjoes, and backwater wiles.
