June
It’s all but decreed:
Because of his breed,
Jeb Bush is the steed
Republicans need.
This Bush guaranteed
A fat-cat stampede.
Most pundits agreed
That soon we would read,
“Jeb’s rivals concede.”

October
Whatever he’d plead,
Few voters would heed.
His poll numbers skied
Downhill with a speed
He could not impede.
Stuff happens, indeed.
