Be My Valentine, Elizabeth Warren (A Love Poem)

Be My Valentine, Elizabeth Warren (A Love Poem)

I don’t often like politicians

Yet there’s one whom I adore:

Elizabeth Warren is easily the best person

To grace the Senate floor.

 

I’m compelled to confess my feelings;

It’s only fair to make my love apparent,

Much like Warren’s plan to make secret settlements

Between the government and corporations more transparent.

 

I respect that she shines a light on ongoing bank fraud

And calls out the DOJ for not sending execs to jail.

Unlike how it should be for economy-crashing companies,

My love for Warren is too big to fail.

 

Warren’s commitment to ending corporate cronyism

Is certainly in no doubt.

When bank CEOs act like we owe them favors,

She reminds them that WE bailed them out.

 

If businesses can borrow from the government for next to nothing,

Why can’t college students borrow at a similar rate?

For daring to ask, Warren has boosted my own interest

In asking her on a romantic dinner date.

 

She knows that finding employment is hard

And that hirers discriminate against the poor,

Which is why she wants to make it illegal

For employers to look at an applicant’s credit score.

 

And let’s not forget

Warren’s quest to raise the minimum wage.

It has similarly raised the fondness in my heart

Despite her being twice my age.

 

Warren’s latest plan to stamp out poverty

Would allow post offices to cash checks.

The idea is such a brilliant turn on

That it makes me want to have se… uh, hold hands.

(Sorry couldn’t think of a rhyme there.)

 

The jealous side of me wants her for myself,

For her to call me up and send me flowers.

The good news is she represents all Americans;

Never mind “be mine” – we’re lucky that she’s ours.

Not a great poem. But I do think she is a fine, and atypical politician. I think that she believes in public SERVICE.

Can't agree with this and find it a yucky sentiment

Yes she is the best person to grace the Congress in a very, very long time. I would love to see her as President but I think she can do more good in the Senate.
