De Blasio and Lhota Head for the Polls

Every weekday on the Daily Poet, the day's news in poetry form.

The progressive and the libertarian
the match is set

or is it yet?
That Thompson man

he still thinks he can
knock the tall man down

No more dick jokes
No more clowns

The lady from downtown
did not make it past the first round

when you dance with the devil
you better be standing on some sound ground

The cat man
is now an also ran

with several million less
in his pocket to invest

So now we wait
a runoff or straight to the gates

The count of votes
will decide who gloats

It’s so typical of the Times to credit the de Blasio win on luck.
