Trick or Treat

Which Candidate Will Deliver What?

Trick or treat! It’s Bush or Kerry.
One is trusted. One is scary.
Both wear masks but one’s misleading us
in terms of how he’ll serve.

John O’Lantern’s always glowing
but it’s scowling George who’s showing
why we need to be on guard against
the ghouls of evil terror.

And we’d best beware of tactics
and the anti-Bush semantics
that are voiced by Kerry’s goblins
as they fly inciting fear.

At the monster mash on Tuesday
both the Times and Post (and Newsday)
will be haunting us with headlines
all the while leaning left.

Will you vote the left or right way?
Look beneath the masks and then pray
that your heart will guide your balloting
regardless of the polls.
