A Voter's Woe (a poem)

Oh woe is me, oh woe, oh woe.

To vote or not, I just don't know.

To stay at home would really show

Those idiots in Washington where to go.

 

But go they would, then where would I be?

Between 'you know who' and the deep blue sea,

Swimming upstream helplessly,

The world going 'you know where' speedily.

 

I can't be Pelosied.  I won't be out—Foxed.

I will not let the country I love be boxed

Into a corner by the muling bleats

Who'd sell 'you know what' for some nice new suites.

 

I may fuss with Republicans. I can always find

Fault with each one, but I've set my mind

On the larger picture, won't see us in tatters.

On November 7th I'll vote for what matters.
