Things to do after your candidate has conceded defeat:

React when you find the time
Stutter when you bluff.
Bluff when your hopes have collapsed. 
Soak your leaf bags in gasoline before burning.
Burn your poems that you have collected in leaf bags.
Change your bedside manner to accommodate bedbugs.
Hoist a jar of molasses above the television news and smash it.
Bite everyone’s thumb but your own.
Spill your guts into an oily milk chamber.
Mutter knowingly about the prey you will fetch and punish.
Stop praying for at least a week.
Hiss at the thief who stole your former life, then spit when her name comes up,
Sleep, perchance to dream.
Wake, perchance to live and drink coffee.
Live to realize another day.
