Every Four Years…

in an empire of green-paper castles
Vultures held two parties for gophers
One party had beautiful blue balloons,
the other- cherry red

From each celebration the
impressionable gophers went
gleefully back to their
winding tunnels
in search of balloons
from the other gopher-party

Each time they spotted a target
they crowded ’round
to chastise the obviously-misguided
mark, for holding
the “wrong” balloon.

Vultures circled above,
monitoring gopher activities…
With a keen eye for those
who thought to
stray from the script.

Thanks to them, the
parties never ended
