Liner Notes: 

The first verse and the chorus were vignettes. Poems are getting longer. This one has one fat verse in it.

Lyrics: 

The Hard-Headed Man August 21, 2020 #23
Elizabeth Singleton

Intro

The hard-headed man is always right.
He takes no advice from anyone.
He must have his way. There’s only one say.
He gets all or none.

The Dem’s convention, online, is over.
They stood united, a solid front for democracy.
Biden’s speech showed compassion, great leadership and strength.
A woman named Kamala, selected as V-P.

Chorus
Goodnight and hallelujah.
November 4 must be a new day.
I’m looking forward to January 20
When Trump gets dragged away.

Kamala Harris is a hero for all women,
A US Senator, former prosecutor, AG.
She’s smart, asks questions, gets answers.
A debate with Pence should be a sight to see.

Next up, the GOP convention.
Have they decided yet on a place?
Expect venom, lies, hyperbole, blame, a one-man show, toadies in tow,
Pure vomit, and further fear for his base.

Chorus
Goodnight and hallelujah.
November 4 must be a new day.
I’m looking forward to January 20
When Trump gets dragged away.

Then it’s off to the election debates
How’s the Postal Service doing now?
Kamala and Pence, Biden and the pres
A requirement before anyone takes the solemn vow.

An election in a pandemic is dangerous for voters.
Mail-in ballots became the best plan.
To suppress the Dem’s votes, Trump and DeJoy,
Sorting machines destroyed, collection boxes un-deployed
So PO employees can’t sort fast or enough ballots scan.
Then they’ll privatize the US Post Office, their eventual game plan.

The outcome is up to you folks.
Biden’s democracy or Trump’s dictatorship.
Your life and your country depend on your choice
Vote wisely. Vote early. Don’t procrastinate or skip.

Chorus
So, Goodnight and hallelujah.
November 4 must be a new day.
I’m looking forward to January 20
When Trump gets dragged away.
