(I began these a couple of years ago—the others are in the archives and were written in response to events at the time they were written)
Obama wasn’t supposed to win,
Was going to take it right on the chin.
Pundits and polls had counted him out;
The economy was what it was all about.
Romney and Ryan were coming on strong.
Tea Partiers were saying “It won’t be long!”
Barack Obama, he didn’t flinch;
He held his ground, didn’t give an inch.
He meant what he said and he said what he meant,
And AGAIN got elected our president.
