Presidential candidates, no more gallimaufry.*
Try to channel the Martian:
“At some point, everything’s gonna go south on you
& you’re going to say, this is it. This is how I end.
Now you can either accept that, or you can get to work.
That’s all it is. You just begin.You do the math.
You solve one problem & you solve the next one, & then the next.
& If you solve enough problems, you get to come home.”
Or be President?
PATTY (With help from Mark Watney the astronaut left on mars which is where I sometimes think some of our candidates might be coming from.)
- gallimaufry (pronounced gal-uh-maw-free) is a hodgepodge, a jumble or confused medley–think: a hash with a bad taste
