Let the Good Light Shine


A Limerick about U.S. Elections

There once was a gop in Lan-KAST-er

Whose skin was - you guessed - alabaster.

The voters chose Izzy.

Incumbent got dizzy

And met his retirement faster.

A Children's Song Parody About U.S. Politics and Elections

We put a right-wing in,

We take a right-wing out.

We keep the right-wing out and

We brightly cheer and shout.

We heartily increase the numbers coming out to vote:

That's what it's all about.

Make voter regist'ring

An automatic thing

When people turn eighteen

All across the U.S.A.

The diff'rences between the states

Do not make any sense.

Scroll to Continue

That's what it's all about.

We make D.C. a state.

They do not need to wait.

It's truly been too late

For their voices to be heard.

Taxation without suffrage is

So un-American.

That's what it's all about.

Electoral college: gone!

It's skewed things for too long

And stolen voters' choices

To make results all wrong

Democracy means everybody's

Choices should be heard.

That's what it's all about.


as it has grown with us.

Amended and awoke.

That's what it's all about.

God Says Ya Got It All Wrong

There were people in power who liked to hate

whoever was not from their pod.

No maleness? no pale skin? no power clique?

Then be our slaves, they cawed.

These rulers knew nothing of history

Or of humans, or earth, or God.

But God, the great Biggie of Better Things,

Observed and beheld they were frauds.

The Source, the Creator, the Chum Who is Good,

Started grooming new leaders who awed

Everyone with their caring and empathy.

The angels began to applaud.

The cheaters now failed.

The liars now railed.

The bullies and blackmailers tumbled.

The flags those beasts waved,

Banners of the depraved,

Joined the Nazis', Redcoats' and such rags.

God declared to the world, "You're ALL wrong.

Some humans are dangerously flawed.

My select group of BIPOC and perceptive peeps

Will repair my Earth, where I once trod."

Intolerance died.

Misogyny fried.

And money no longer bought power.

Every species was treasured,

Marriage rules severed,

And climate regarded as urgent.

Hallelujah, Amen,

Hallelujah, Amen!

And again, Hallelujah, Amen.
