Two Political Campaign Signs Set on Fire

By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall (Rated G)
Title from a news item

Perhaps that’s all the fire they’ve got this year
Obediently yapping into the dark
In camouflage knee-pants and plastic shoes
Both sides agreeing only in their hate

If they were to exchange their campaign tees
No one could tell them apart, not even themselves
Demanding that each other be locked up
With locks long since rusted, keys long since lost

Cheap disposable lighters fueled with cheap beer –
Perhaps that’s all the fire they’ve got this year
