Poem: Electoral College and the NFL

In a time of protests, name calling, hate, and safety pins; a poem for you.

____________

 

It’s surprising that some are questioning the election rules,

that we have supported since the Constitutional Convention.

Now, some supporters of Hillary Clinton disagree with the process,

they choose to protest in our streets and cry for attention.

**

The Electoral process is not one person, one vote,

our Forefathers knew that when they penned the rules.

Today, some Americans are not happy with the results,

they ignore the law, pretending ignorance like fools.

**

When we watch an NFL game on Sunday afternoon,

on a TV in our living room or at a sports bar.

We may compare different players statistics,

and remember a pass thrown very far.

**

We love our numbers, we count tackles,

and yards gained in downs one through four,

But in the end, the only thing that matters,

is the points, the final score.

**

So it is with the Electoral College Vote,

written by The “Fathers” including Thomas Jefferson.

It is not the national popular vote that counts,

electoral votes determine how the race is won.

**

The system has been tested for decades,

with different results over the years.

However, we have relied on it to govern us,

not dwell on complaining but preferring united cheers!

**

Let’s stop the protesting and name calling,

the bickering, and the safety pins.

Accept the Constitution as it is written,

It is clear that Donald Trump wins.

**

If you don’t like the rules that have been made,

then start lobbying Congress through letter writing.

Quit needless gossip and protests,

we need positive actions, not backbiting.

**
America is a nation of laws and regulations,

we have voluntarily chosen to live by.

If you don’t like our rules and statutes,

Come up with better ones, or move to Dubai!
