A Midterm Letter to the GOP (2022)
No Red Wave, rather a Red Ripple
About this the results aren’t fickle.
America hath clearly spoke
You Repubs sort of choked.
Mar-a-lago has quite the “Orange Grump”
On MAGA, Independents took a dump.
Aside from ‘Ron DeSanctimonius’
Your midterms weren’t glorious.
Please GOP, try to follow along
To figure out what went wrong.
Keep calling elections ‘fixed’
And your results shall be mixed.
Keep shoving church into state
And you won’t like your political fate.
Keep embracing Crazy Hair Don
And 2024 will be your swan song.
Lincoln’s party should return
To and for what you used to yearn.
Argue our best days are ahead
It’s Morning In America, that message spread!
Condemn racism in all its forms
To 64’s Civil Rights Act do conform.
Encourage personal accountability and responsibility
Recall ‘a thousand points of light,’ volunteerism is civility!
Focus on lower taxes and national defense
Sans the social stuff that doesn’t make sense.
Aim to spend less of our our money
Your tab is as much as the Dems’, honey!
Attract younger voters
They too are power brokers.
Above all, stop your civil war!
Recall a piece of your own lore:
A party divided against itself cannot stand.
Unite, that’s what Honest Abe commands.
