An update of "The Times They Are A-Changing" to help us get through the rest of the 2016 campaign

The Campaign Soon Will Be Ending Come gather, good citizens, and rest from the fray, The election will happen four weeks from today, We’ll cry “Let us vote!” and then “let us pray”: We’re well past the point of offending, So the most welcome word is for this song to say: The campaign soon will be ending! We’ve put up with this nonsense since early ‘15 The surge of each candidate – what did it mean? They made their crude pitches and littered the scene With Facebook rants, ads, and tweets trending: Now just two are still upright, but one is obscene: The campaign soon will be ending! The movement for Bernie was more than a cult Though it sometimes resembled one, stirring tumult Provoked by Debbie Wasserman Schultz; Party fabric sure needed some mending: Still, Dem voters may split off or stay home and sulk — The campaign soon will be ending! The Republican crowd made many jaws clench: Shallow on the field, not too deep on the bench: Their ideas were merde (pardon my French!) Their credentials were full of pretending: Now the ticket top stinks, they can’t wave off the stench: The campaign soon will be ending! “The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast”: Captain Ahab has nailed the doubloon to the mast The White Whale of Destruction blows cold from the past, While the future toward justice is bending: Does it mean this election could well be our last? The campaign soon will be ending!
