It really would stick in the craw
To find that you had to withdraw
From such a big race
For not keeping pace
In a poll that was nothing but straw.

That’s certainly true of Lamar,
Whose finish did not approach par.
The oxygen drain
That caused his campaign
Will put it beyond CPR.

It’s hard to remember before
Lamar joined the candidates corps.
He runs with such zeal
The chances are he’ll
Reappear there in 2004.
