CRACKED SCREEN

Were I not restrained
My TV would have
A cracked screen…
Living in a swing state
Means being exposed
To wall-to-wall lies
Financed by the rich
To fool the poor into
Voting against themselves…
Though not a huge TV fan
I don’t want to buy a new one
So I hurl insults at the screen
And keep my shoes on my feet
