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.
