Once again it's that time of year,
When political banter seems the rage.
When otherwise normal people,
Try to come off as some worldly sage.
I have friends who are really nice folks,
Any other time of the year.
But, once they start with the political rants,
I really don't want them near.
Of course, their views are always right,
How could it be any other way?
And you too could be right like them,
If you just listen to what they say.
Some people take it all quite seriously,
And engage in rather spirited exchange.
As if convincing all their Facebook friends,
Will bring about a world of change.
But the more I hear all this political banter,
The more it makes me think.
That the only party I want to join,
Is one where I can get a drink.
