He Reflects on the Guy He Endorsed

by Chris O’Carroll

Ed mouthed my script on crime and race,
But stiffed me on his fond embrace.

I said he’d make Virginia great.
Now he’s a loser, which I hate.

When candidates that I support
Betray my trust by falling short,

It must be their fault; it can’t be
My failure. No way. They failed me.
