Anti-Republican Poetry: Mitt Romney

For the next entry into the anti-Republican Presidential Poetry collection, we have former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney. For Romney, I am going to allow two kinds of poetry. First is a type of poetry called "Rispetto." It is an Italian rhyming poetry that rhymes ABAB-CCDD - meaning that the first and third lines of the first stanza rhyme, as well as the 2nd and 4th. But the first and 2nd of the second stanza rhyme as well as the 3rd and fourth. Also (and here is the difficult part) it usually and strictly has 11 syllables per line (called iambic tetrameter). An example:

Somewhere in Massachusetts, sits a Mormon
With bright, colorful Presidential daydreams,
Hoping that New England's liberal women
Ignore his NeoCon flip-flopping speech themes

Once he was pro-choice, with bipartisan dotes
Now he has changed for Evangelical votes
What kind of a prick would switch and not explain
That is, of course, besides Senator McCain


I will also offer an easier type of poetry. It is called a Tetractys. It is simpler. It is like the British form of a Haiku. Each line has a set number of syllables, and it is much shorter. The syllable structure is 1, 2, 3, 4, 10. Feel free and give it a title to make more sense. An Example:

Why a Moderate Can't Win
Will Lose
One Reason
Dislike those who once supported gay rights


Good luck! And PLEASE remember to submit other anti-Republican poetry to this site, by clicking on the "Contribute" link at the very top of this webpage underneath the banner. Email the page to everyone you can think of who would enjoy contributing.
