With Labor Day behind us the campaigns get more intense,
But the Presidential season has seldom made less sense.
The Republicans are bickering, Obama’s back is to the wall,
Huckabee leads the Gallup, and he’s not in the race at all!
European stock markets have gone into the dumps,
Based mostly on the U.S. unemployment slump.
Now in addition to our recovery and our job goals to pursue,
Apparently we have to worry about rescuing Europe too.
College football is back again to amuse and entertain,
And most of the top teams did well, except for Notre Dame.
TCU lost a close game, with Baylor scoring late,
And the reigning champs, the Auburn Tigers nearly lost to Utah State
The annual MDA Telethon carried on with Jerry gone,
Nigel Lithgoe and some beauties capably carried on.
They raised $61M in six hours, more than in past years,
Looks like people are willing to pay not to have Jerry appear.
