I would love to "Feel the Bern" but fear that I'm too old
And great age has taught me, Sanders' platform's much too bold
For a country as divided as the U.S. is;
There's no way to implement these grand reforms of his.
Does he think that President Obama hasn't tried,
Only compromising to appease the other side?
Bully pulpit doesn't guarantee a bargain's struck.
What makes Bernie Sanders think that he'll have better luck?
'though there's little Bernie's said with which I disagree
All my years confer (along with an arthritic knee)
Just enough experience in politics to know
You can vote for hope and change but that won't make it so.
