Playing Along For Now
(Or: Bernie Sanders makes the “tough choice” to fold)

I’m “playing along, for now”
(With “now” meaning “four years and counting”)
Soon I will fight back, I vow
(Just wait till some votes begin mounting).

In only three states, I gave up
And started rehearsing excuses
“The Russians” put borscht in my cup
Which caused me to slurp my own juices.

While Tulsi struck back at the smears
I chose to roll over when smitten.
As Clinton keeps grinding her gears,
I drink from the glass she has spit in.

The Democrats do not hate Trump,
But only admire his erection.
So I’ll be the one they will dump
If I make it to the election.
