L. B. Mek said:

but still facing the same blockading Republican house majority that dissolved Obama\'s presidency to the annals of the toothless!
so then, more years of deadlocked governing to look forward to I guess,
sorry for my negativity, it\'s just deflating that our best solution is democracy but our society is so willingly ignorant of the most basic of reality\'s facts that those in power manipulate and toy with our votes just as they did back in feudalism times...
dispiriting to watch humanity\'s cyclical fate and be powerless to convey to other\'s how absurdly easy we position ourselves to be taken advantage of: generation after wasted generation,
please forgive me for posting such an opinionated reply in your comments,

BRIAN HERE ~ Good Evening FAY ~ Pleased YOU enjoyed it. It is the last of a TRILOGY of *Free Verse Acrostics* on the implications and outcome of the very significant 2020 USA Prsidential Election. Because I was born in Liverpool (51st State !) and my Grandparents & Parents had many American Friends I started to visit the USA as a Teenager in the 1990*s. Angela & I hope to have visited (between US) all 50 States by 2030 ! I have a geat empathy with the USA so for ME this ELECTION was a Spiritual Pivot on which America would turn back again to Decency - Democracy & Deity ! Joe Biden is a committed Christian (Lifelong Cathiolic). Angela & I see the Election of Joe & Kamala as a very timely Miracle ~ AMEN

Blessings & Love & Joy & Peace

Yes I\'ve been there and certainly very friendly restaurants but not exactly the high end of healthy cuisine. Apart from that a fab country. Thanks to the outcome of the election hopefully they will now, in the eyes of the world, regain their dignity and esteem which they so deserve.

Never been to America, mind you the last time I travelled by \'plane was in the 1960s when we all had to run along the runway to get the \'plane in the air. LOL.

I still dunno if we can trust someone with such a dodgy barnet! Oops, I\'m looking on the outward appearance.
A rip-roaring song. A tricky one to set to a hymn-poem, but have done so in the past.

It seems to be a bit of a farce when people are saying stop counting, surely in a decent democracy EVERY vote cast should be counted.

Re: Pope - a church ranted on when they made John Newman a Saint (we all are saints in one sense, we know). He, erm, \'defected\' from the Anglican Church?!

Lol, I\'ve got all that stuff in the loft, enough to to do a boot sale. The proceeds should just cover a gift wrapped scratching post for Smokey.

L. B. Mek said:

yikes, way too early for me, presents are remembered in those moments where December swings its calendar from 20th to far too late
(silly admittedly, but it does give me an ounce of credibility when commiserating loved one\'s for the tenth year in a row, as they are forced to accept socks and gift cards as viable valuation\'s for my levels of thoughtfulness)...
lol, good read

\'All contributions gratefully received\' said the Vicar, as they passed round the hat a second time. This actually hapened in an eccentric church! And it was a literal hat. Doh!
