    This Poem right hur, was inspired by my hot gurl Vicki Lawerence

    The Night The Voting Machines Went out in Florida

    It was the presidential election
    And without question
    Al Gore was a shoe in for FL
    His lucky number was 21
    And before the night was done
    President he would become

    That’s the night the voting machines went out in Florida
    That’s the night they elected a guilty man
    Your election ballot might get tossed in the trash in Florida
    And the Governor of this state got evil on his hands

    The people turned out
    And then began the count
    And the Television stations assured Gore had won

    This is Tom Brokaw with NBC
    And it looks to me
    That in Florida Al Gore has victory

    But back in Texas their wear no tears or fears
    Not even a mouse was sleep at the Bush Ranch
    For an early victory gala was live and awake
    Because a lot of voting ballots in Florida were swimming in our lakes

    That’s the night the voting machines went out in Florida
    That’s the night they elected a guilty man
    Your election ballot might get tossed in the trash in Florida
    And the Governor of this state got evil on his hands

    The ballots were thrown out
    And within the twinkling of an eye
    Al Gore and Joe Liebermann were out to dry

    George W. Bush had won
    And thus began the decline of the US
    Via George Bush senior’s son

    That’s the night the voting machines went out in Florida
    That’s the night they elected a guilty man
    Your election ballot might get tossed in the trash in Florida
    And the Governor of this state got evil on his hands

    Yes, to the tune of The Night that the Lights Went Out in Georgia...This was on point, still shaking my head over what happened, this was creatively done.

    Oh Brother...
    love the concept...
    feeling the truth

    ...and that night has proven again
    that "Evil" falls by its own weight
