America, I Want You Blue

in Politics by

Blue, I want you blue.
with dignity (and liberty) for all.
Blue Power.
Blue Money.
Blue Waves of Blue Energy.
When they go low we get high.
You can say that again,
Chief Blue-in-the-Face.
Blue polar bear ghosts racing past.
Blue ink running down the street
in blue diamond rain.
Blue jobs. Blue fangs.
Blue change, changing everything.
