Iā€™m Reminded Of

Accidental Poet


I’m reminded of

A question some years ago

Someone had the bright idea

If we held an election and no one showed


Two political candidates

Of equal opposing intellect

But falling somewhat short

Were someone to inspect


So, what if

Upon arrival of election day

The ballet boxes remained empty

All the ballet boxes everywhere

Not even a single entry


There’d be no winner

Just two political losers

Of which we already knew

Two American public abusers


They run for presidency

An office of international affairs

But when domestic opinions decline

That’s bound to cause some shady stares


What a message it would send

To have an election

Where no one showed up to vote

No confidence in the public’s reflection

      Great Orchi, I'm sure she'll add you as her running mate. šŸ˜˜šŸ‘

      Oh dear, I do not envy any honest American right now, the future looks a bit bleak but there will come a time where all the goof balls will be far to old for the political scene. It's no better in Europe really, however trump is certainly not getting any votes from the Americans I know. I have already said too much. I am a far of current affairs but just not what I read and see online . šŸŒ¹

        No need to fear of offending me Teddy. No way Trump will get my vote. I\'m not all that happy with Biden either, but a vote for Biden is a vote against Trump. Problem with the younger politicians is that the system trains them all to think they can get away with murder. Thanks for reading and commenting Teddy. šŸ˜‰šŸ‘

            Sorry, mate - look up ballet boxes as opposed to ballot boxes - meant as a jokey correction.

            Such true words AP, even hear in the UK none of the politicians can be trusted.
            "How do you know when a politician is lying?"
            "Their lips move!"

              hahahaha, yes Andy. And just yesterday on YouTube I saw a video of Trump giving a speech saying that he has never had a beer or any drink in his entire life. Proof he lied, his lips moved. šŸ‘

              Great work. Poignant.

                Thanks Thomas, our elections have become a 3 ring circus. šŸ™„
