Who can save
The Home of the Brave
When the number one man for the next four years
Will be less respected than his deputising,
Skull-capped or bald-headed,
To the party message wedded,
Not too pretty, not too witty, image-balancer for hire?
What future can we see
For the Land of the Free
When whoever they choose on Tuesday night
Will be in the shadow of his patronising,
Genetically for office breeding,
Crypto-dynastic, pseudo-democratic, Washington insider sire?
What does it say
About the US of A
That whoever slips in to replace Slick Willy
Will be less well-loved than a womanising,
Sax-obsessed, sex-obsessed, lame duck liar?
