VOTE … IF ALLOWED

It’s not an age for poetry to add
The gift of lovely language to sick facts.
We live in times when Hitler, Stalin or Mao
Would all applaud those politicians who
Would turn this nation back to days when if
You were a woman, black or poor you weren’t
Allowed to vote; then have the gall to claim
They’re just protecting us from less than one
Percent who might corrupt the ballot box
With fraud and think we’re ignorant enough
We’ll all scream HALLEJAH for their lies.

I went to war to fight for freedom; not
These fascist freaks whose grand ambitions rest
On greed and vanity to breed new slaves.
Do mark my words. I’d take up arms again
To slay attempts to kill our liberty.

So true. Some will take your registration and will, if it has a 'D' on it, throw it away and claim they are the true patriots protecting the nation. There is real fraud going on in the country. Here is a little story I read in this morning's newspaper:

As election workers throughout Florida last week began combing through registration forms filed by the state Republican Party, it wasn't hard to find ones that looked suspicious.

Some had names spelled differently than signatures. Others had nonexistent addresses as homes. Some shared the same handwritting.

Election supervisors in eleven counties have flagged scores of error-ridden or possibly fraudulent forms submitted statewide by the voter-registration operation under the Republican Party of Florida.


Now, is there anyone who didn't see THAT coming.

You inspire me to keep working on a poem on a similar subject. Thank you for your words today, my friend.
