Hamster Hamster

What’s your political opinion?

Hamster Hamster

Do you want to run for office?

Hamster Hamster

Do you want everyone to be your minion?

Hamster Hamster

Or at this game are you a novice?

 

Hamster Hamster

Are you a socialist?

Hamster Hamster

Maybe you’re a conservative?

Hamster Hamster

Though you’re probably a fascist

Hamster Hamster

Big fascist hamster with no relative

 

Hamster Hamster

Are you going to put us all in concentration camps?

Hamster Hamster

Are you going to close all the borders?

Hamster Hamster

Are you going to make us just use lamps?

Hamster Hamster

Or are we all going to become hoarders?

 

Hamster Hamster

Are you going to make us build you a giant hamster wheel?

Hamster Hamster

Or maybe we will toil in factories making you hamster treats

Hamster Hamster

Is your running mate going to be a big grey seal?

Hamster Hamster

Or maybe we will all be unemployed wandering the streets

 

Hamster Hamster

There in your little hamster cage

Hamster Hamster

I’m not sure I ever want to let you out

Hamster Hamster

What you might do to us is hard to gauge

Hamster Hamster

So just sit there and pout

This was written for Chelsea Owens’s Terrible Poetry Competition #26. The aim was to write a poem about small rodents’ opinions on political policies.

I did originally paste the poem in comments sections of Chelsea Owens’s post with no intentions of posting it on my blog, but I changed my mind.

I’m not sure if my last post was seen by that many people. It was my response to Sammi Cox’s prompt and you can view it here: Lost In Translation

 

Please buy me a coffee! 🙂

  1. Deb Whittam is one of my favorite bloggers on WordPress, but I think that one deserves to win Chelsea’s contest hands down… You need to get a beatnik to recite it with bongos in the background…
