The Democratic Party Dressed for Halloween

The Democratic Costume Party is held on Halloween
With Hillary as Jezebel, the dangerous sleazy Queen.

Joe Biden comes as Dracula, the vampire looking flushed,
Who tries to take a bite of every female neck he touched.

Kamala is a stringed Pinocchio with a long nose—
The batteries and lies she tells ensure it somehow grows.

Chuck Schumer comes as Shy Bo Peep, along with jumping sheep—
Hypnotic vapid rhetoric puts everyone to sleep.

Nancy Pelosi dresses as the Wicked Witch of the West.
Her hideous hair is blowing while her costume’s judged the best.

The ghosts of their dead voting base are floating in the air.
Confetti from fake shredded ballots shower everywhere.

    Very funny Roy: the final couplet – The ghosts of their dead voting base are floating in the air.
    Confetti from fake shredded ballots shower everywhere. – is decisive!!

    Nice pun on the word “party!” This put a smile on my face.

    The only thing is, if I saw all those people at such a costume party, I’d say, “It’s a shame none of you could find costumes!”

    The Republicans sent a clown called Trump
    Dressed as a penis, in other words, a schmuck.

      If you’re going to write a satiric couplet, it ought to scan metrically, and rhyme. Once again, the left shows its incompetence.

      • Joshua C. Frank

        Or maybe, like the government, they just want us to think they’re incompetent so they can distract us while they manipulate things behind the scenes.

        What I resent most about comments like Mr. Pearl’s is that people think, because I’m not a leftist, I enthusiastically support Trump. I support him against the likes of Biden, Harris, Clinton, etc., but that’s the extent of it. We’ve had all this time to change things by voting Republican, and things keep getting worse, because the Republican Party today is the Democratic Party of 20 years ago, and people were saying that 20 years ago.

      • Joseph S. Salemi

        Joshua, there is an important principle of both politics and combat: Your allies are the ones whose guns are pointing in the same direction as your guns. Nothing else about them matters. Nothing.

        Trump is perhaps not the perfect ideal candidate, but who the hell can worry about Platonic ideals at this point? His enemies are our enemies. You cannot judge an ally by Categorical Imperatives, or by religious scrutiny, or by moral nit-picking. He’s just a soldier in the foxhole with you, firing at the same scum.

    Well, Roy, I laughed. That’s certainly not one to put anybody to sleep!

    • Roy Eugene Peterson

      Glad you enjoyed it, Paul. I certainly wanted them to appear at the party the way they appear to me.

  5. Warren Bonham

    Very clever and entertaining. This is likely to be the scariest Halloween in human history.

  6. C.B. Anderson

    Why don’t you tell us how you really feel about the damned Dems, Roy?

    • Margaret Coats

      Careful, C. B. It may not make for such an amusing poem if Roy imagines the present appearance of Dianne Feinstein who departed party life a month ago.

  7. Joseph S. Salemi

    How about the Resident’s lying press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre? She could come to the party as one of the living dead, wearing a fright-wig.

  8. Paul A. Freeman

    Of all of the ghoulies at night going bump,
    what can be worse than the orange-faced… Grump?

    Happy Halloween.

    • Roy Eugene Peterson

      Cute contribution, Paul! Happy and Safe Halloween to you, as well!

      • Paul A. Freeman

        Thanks, Roy.

        Last night I was sitting in an outdoor cafe as a full moon rose and a bat made its way across the sky towards me. Now, that’s Halloween!

  9. Jeff Eardley

    Hilarious Roy and so irreverent to all those wonderful Democrats. We could do with a UK version, starting with Boris and the awful witch, Liz Truss. Great stuff today.

    • Roy Eugene Peterson

      Thank you so much for the comments, Jeff. We all seem to have politicians these days that are worthy of ridicule.
