Election Day

America, America,

Every four years there is an election

A race is run not by the fastest of athletes

But by people vying to be the commander–in chief

People that orate elegantly organized words

Dressed up in cloth dripping with luxury

They speak of the problems reeking havoc on the people

Provide solutions

Action plans they seek to implement

They feel your pain although they’ve never been in your community

Or travelled there without a camera

Or a journalist sniffing out their trail

They’ve even earned your trust as you gave them a seat in the hallowed halls of Congress

They say they’ll do what needs to be done

When their track record negates every word they utter

In a system of two dominant parties

With two choices

What’s a person to do when they have to decide which one of the two ills should earn their vote?

Do you vote for the liar?

Or the egomaniac?

Choices, Choices, Choices

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

Counting down to Election Day to see what you decide.
