Poetic plea for certainty

Jim Hopkins casts his eye over the election of Barack Obama  while the extinguished poet laureate, Mr Jam Hipkins pens a plea for electoral certainty here:

Just one more sleep for Helen And John to name but two
And one more sleep for all the rest
And one more sleep for you
Then shall people’s voice ring out
In tones both loud and clear
In polling booths and country halls
In hamlets far and near
It’s there we’ll shed those little ticks
That choose who next will be
The government err, maybe not
All thanks to MMP
We may not get a government
Full focused on its mission
We may just get 6 weeks of talks
And a creaky coalition
So, friends, electors, one and all
Think deep before you pick
Tick not some Harry or some Tom
Nor yet some frightful Dick
The list of candidates is long
There’s Dingbatt and Crackpott
There’s Dipstick, Dullard, Drongo, Floppe
There’s Loony and there’s Lott
Mark not such well-scrubbed hopefuls
Eschew their blandishments
Cast not your vote for those who stand
Bereft of any sense
Proceed then to your ballots
Full of MMPeacefulness
Determined to bring clarity
Not three long years of stress
Just remember my prediction
Made bold through thick and thin
My expert view has always been
Someone’s going to win.
