I think the poetry thread got deleted during the time warp; it's time to bring it back. Here's one that I threw together real quick in my literature class today: He thought he could save America; he was partly true. He was supported by many; his competitor, few. As the governor of California, he helped to calm the riots. He sent in the highway patrol to restore the peace and quiet. In 1976, he lost his first campaign. The people often thought they had chosen the wrong man. Four years later, he had won the race, and he threw Mr. Carter out on his face. He became the President for 8 years thereafter. Some would say those years were a terrible disaster. Meh, it took about ten minutes, and I was building from a vague prompt: Everyone is welcome, so post away!
