“I remember when Halloween was the scariest night of the year. Now, it’s Election night.”

“When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it.”   Clarence Darrow

Wouldn’t it be novel
If you couldn’t get rich
or be on Letterman
or have at your command
Air Force one and limousines
if it didn’t set you up for life
in a higher tax bracket money
you could manipulate
and get around the IRS
why, then,
maybe then,
we’d get a leader to lead.
The presidency is beginning
to look a lot like a CEO –
perks and big salaries
and toss integrity overboard.
