I Turned Bernie's And Hillary's Most Used Phrases Into Beautiful Poems
Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have been talking quite a lot over the past 10 months.
The smarties over at FiveThirtyEight put together a list of the phrases the candidates used the most in the Democratic debates.
Some of those phrases are super vague, like Hillary's top phrase, "to go after."
Some are a little more specific, like Bernie's eighth most-used phrase, "the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs."
But when life gives you a bunch of absurd, context-less political phrases, you have to make lemonade. So, here are some poems I made completely out of Bernie's and Hillary's most used phrases, with lines alternating between the two candidates.
"Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good State"

And there A political revolution Spent a lot of time
"The Mountain Not Climbed"
We have to go To the top To do everything I can
