Poetry Challenge: The Propaganda Machine

We are in the midst of a very brutal political battle here in the U.S.A...  Our leader Barack Obama is duking it out with Republican Presidential Candidate Mitch Romney, and the propaganda machine is firing on all cylinders.  We've heard everything from the scary to the ridiculous in this election year, and I thought it would be a good idea to lighten up the mood by poking some fun at some of the ridiculous stories we've heard on the news. 

This week's Random Madness poetry challenge is all about showing support for your presidential pick by making fun of his opponent .  It doesn't matter who you are backing in this election, all are welcome to participate in this challenge.  The idea is to create some hilarious poetry that everyone can laugh at, so if you think you have the gusto to accept this challenge, here is what you need to do.

Guidelines for challenge:
  • Read some of the most recent political stories involving Mitch Romney and Barack Obama.
  • Find an interesting way to poke fun at these exhibits of propaganda.
  • Create an original poem and share it in the comment section of this blog post.  

Election day is right around the corner.  There is no doubt that the propaganda machine will only get bigger and bolder as the time draws near.  This challenge will remain open as long as there are poets who want to share, so feel free to take your time and wait for even funnier stories to come out about these presidential candidates.
