Blue Comes Through

by Thomas DeFreitas

As Lone Star folks are frozen,
Ol’ Teddy hits CancĂșn.
(Some wish that he had chosen
To fly straight to the moon.)

Then AOC, Bronx lefty,
Is roused to act and raise
A sum of dough (quite hefty!)
In just a few brief days.

While Cruz says “see ya later,”
Deciding to vacate,
The bluest legislator
Comes through for a red state.
