Day of the Already Dead (lament)

Elections come and go

Any progress very slow

You could vote for Joe Blow

And changes still not show

Politicians spread their word

Only particulars are heard

Actual intentions often blurred

Usual protestations stirred

Voting is your right, your choice

It’s the only way to voice

Your own thoughts with poise

Ignoring all the lie filled noise.
