Phillip Coffey - Oft in the Distance

By Phillip Coffey
Common folk and their critters run under their planked porches
When they hear him exclaiming as he in the distance - approaches.
Be sure to hide the women and small children - chicken brood as well.
Election season is upon us -bundle up real good for the duration.

He be so effective, deceiving - borders Ghost and Gobelins in his pleading
For your support with all your funds and total unabashed commitment.
Just pull the correct lever - all your problems solved - quickly relieving.
On my goodness, listen ! oft in the distance -'this po' man be a-leaving'.
