TO THE EDITOR:
Concerning the election,
I’ve looked in every direction.
But when the candidates give a suggestion,
It only gives me indigestion.
Do not be in such haste
To say my vote is just a waste.
The privilege of voting
Is something on which our country is based.
I feel as though I must vote
For the many who don’t have this right,
And to honor those who wanted it, who had to fight.
Should we not use this opportunity for our feelings to denote?
Despite the dissatisfaction
These candidates promote,
I can issue only this call to action
And beg you to vote.
Recognize the privilege
You have been permitted.
Research the candidates and at least to the idea
Of voting become committed.
Perhaps you will find something new
Or even an idea that makes you stew.
Regardless, you shouldn’t be stuck like glue
To someone on TV you only view.
If you must, hold your nose
And make a list of cons and pros.
Find a candidate you think may be all right,
And pray to God we’ll get out of this plight.
You will vote.
