Call Him Al

Gore no bore
declares that Bush
has brought us
to the doors
of 1984.

and failed to make us any safer
in our beds.

Clearly seeking to distinguish
Dems from Republicans
Al would make his gang
the Party of 1983

always on the brink of disaster
heroically walking the tightrope
over Neo-Con abysmal

he forgets
he fell off.
