Robert Frost’s Ghost Laments

Robert Frost’s Ghost Laments

woods-snowy-eve-mistake

Whose pols these are I think I know.  
They’re swarming thru the village though;  
They do not want me stopping here  
Instead of at their silly show. 

My little horse must think it queer  
To stop without a pollster near,  
To ask him one more time today
Which one he favors for this year.

He gives his harness bells a SNAP,  
To see the woods fill up with CRAP. 
Godawful noise across the land 
From blowhard Chump & Bushie Clap

It fills New Hampshire, dark and deep
With empty vows that they won’t keep.
There’s still a week before I sleep,  
A long, damn week til I can sleep.
