I didn’t donate when the asks began.
I didn’t vow to not contribute cash,
but as it went, I never saw the plan

The DNC kept nagging me with flash
communications, using my first name,
re-telling what I knew and making game
about how much they’d raised (without my check).
“But what if others thought like you?” My claim:
Well, then the world would be a different wreck.
(Actually, I did, after composing)
