Why Romney Lost Election?

       the birthplace of
       Mitt Romney
deserted the son of the soil
       where he lived,
       served as Governor
devalued his administrative skills
New Hampshire
        his chosen state to launch
        the presidential campaign
refused to go along
Uncommitted core constituents
Romney’s skeptical flock
adding insult to injury
when Wisconsin the home state
of his running mate 
     Paul Ryan
followed suit

No wonder
from Change to Forward
holding on to his citadel
Obama won 

Note: '
Change' and 'Forward' were political slogans of Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 respectively.

Comment 9 Nov. '12
We should not miss the sporting spirit of both Romney and Obama. Notwithstanding their fierce fight, we can believe, they will now work hand in glove for advancement of America in sharp contrast with the Indian politicians who are always self centered even when their country will go to the Hell!
