Here is the progression that this contest follows.

Once again, it was a tough call, but in the end, @fubar-bdhr won it. Congratulations! I’ll send your 25 STEEM over shortly!

Thanks very much to all who entered. I seriously appreciate your participation, even though I did not reply to all the entries that came in. A lot of originality and creativity was put into your entries, and I considered them all. Just because Papa can, I even chose a WILD CARD Runner Up for this round.


Here is the 10 STEEM Papa-Pepper WILD CARD Runner up!

Great entry @elgeko!

Obviously we are dealing with a touchy subject here since politics are involved. Let's either be serious about these subjects or have some fun with them, but let's do so respectfully and appropriately. Anyone can make a vulgar rhyme about politicians, but that is NOT what I'm looking for in a winning entry.

Here are the rules for Round 4:

  • Create an original poem based on the winning meme from @fubar-bdhr.
  • The poem must be at least 8 lines long.
  • The poem must rhyme in some way.
  • The poem will be used as lyrics for a song next round, so you may want to keep that in mind.
  • Enter original work and provide your entry in a reply to this post.
  • You can still make a post out of your entry, but your post does not count as an entry, only your reply.
  • Keep everything kid-friendly and G rated.
  • You must enter by midnight next Sunday (CST) in order for your entry to be considered valid.
  • By entering, you are giving me full permission to use your entry however I wish.

Until next time…

Sort Order:  

Trump gonna thump that Hillary clown,
Aliens runnin' cuz it's now his town!
Gonna drain the swamp, gonna clean this place,
D.C. gonna change 'cuz he's in your face!

But wait, what's this? Where's the promised change?
Hillary's friend made a transformation? Strange!
No longer gonna prosecute or make big deals.
Just another saber rattler pandering to feelz!

Politicians all a bunch of sneaky cockroaches,
The only alien is the truth this rhyme broaches.
Power-hungry, lying, thieving, hateful egotistical!
They're cut from the same cloth, neither one a savior mystical.

Wikileaks can demonstrate just how corrupt both are.
Trump was just the better in the mud-slinging by far.
Obama's playbook stolen, he played "outsider" well,
But honest politicians stand a snowball's chance in hell!

Entry reposted on my blog here

Here's a photo of trump with a politician who failed again
For an office some would prefer to see Sarah Palin in
You can see from her backyard the Russian vale of sin
Perfect place for getting bedwetting blackmailed in
No wonder trump shouldered a hammer at hillary, wailin'

"Legal or not I'm gonna get this alien!"

(*disclaimer: this is not an endorsement of any of the above- named politician scum. I am an equal opportunity curmud-geon.

The hate building inside of me
I could not bare
Which led me to the state fair

After 300 spent on the game
I received the fame
A glorious hammer to seal her fate
A gavel of vengeance for my countermate

An annoying smile escaped her face
Because 5 minutes with me
Was more than she could take

Free at last, free at last
Her last words to escape...

(Poem written in 5 minutes)
Thank you!

Gather round, I'll tell you a tale, one as old as time,
About an alien, reptile woman accused of many crimes.
She met her match in 2016, by the rise of "The Orange One,"
The Orange One was fierce and many a movie he had done.
To know the whole story we must go, "Back to the Future" again,
To find our hero in "Home Alone", giving guidance to young Kevin.
The battle was long, fought hard from both land and sea,
Many leaks were sprung to sink the ship of the lizard Hillary.
Along the way, people's champ was abducted and forever changed,
He was replaced with a dis-functioning clone, orange and deranged.
Lies a many, amassed on both sides, but of one thing we were clear,
HRC or Trump, America's darkest days were coming the next year.


The Clone Wars are a dark time indeed. :)
