From bad to worse. Some years, muscadel
Faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don't fail,
Sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well.
A people sometimes will step back from war;
Elect an honest man; decide they care
Enough, that they can't leave some stranger poor.
Some men become what they are born for.
Sometimes our best efforts do not go
Amiss, sometimes we do as we meant to.
The sun will sometimes melt a field of snow
That seemed hard frozen: may it happen for you.
*Mostly. Because you're still bloody homophobic (Looking at you, California, especially). Bastards.
