  why all the political-jousting?
bush claiming victor causing shake
in the richtor.

yes gore conceded at first when
he thought
he lost at what was being cost?.

after the recant bush was smug
now look at the hole you dug?.
ballots in doubt of bush's supposed

no longer a joy-ride time 2c who had
the most to hide?.

we the people..remote at our supposed votes
it's their parties one that counts regardless
how out-cries mount?.

this system shrouds whomever's in office
will have a cloud.
