The Other Side

I sat at a table in Wilmington, NC
Attending a conference courtesy of GE.
Both sides were invited, but only one came
A staffer named Don (representing McCain),

Don gave his talk on policy things,
Told of energy plans, invited us to the ring,
Fielded our questions as best as he could,
Said that McCain wouldn’t just knock on wood.

On opposite side, Nobody stood there
With an easel, whiteboard, and a black office chair.Why was Nobody there on the room’s other side?
The crowd was mostly underneath 25.

Two sides were invited, but one only one showed
Why Obama did not, who really knows?
I’ll recall on the 4th his absence from there
and vote to keep him from that big comfy chair!
