Chrumpton Heard the . . . Whos?


an election in verse



A non-poet's thoughts on election 2016



J.M. Pierce




Chrumpton Heard the . . . Whos?



On the sixteenth of June

In the summer of Nyork

An elephant stepped up

with a plan for more work.


Then citizen Chrumpton threw

his name in the hat, said, "I stand

with the people, the workers ignored!

Give voice to Forgottens, the flyover poor!"


The news birds did cackle

and paid squawkers roared,

"What people? The voters?

Forgottens? What poor?"


They knew better than Chrumpton.
