Election Abjection

© The Secret Poetess

We are led by the people we choose.

We vote – and ‘they’ win or lose.

We live – and expect the best.

We find that they’re just like the rest.

We do it again and again.

Almost with utter disdain.

Electing a person with merit?

A legacy we didn’t inherit.

We are about to choose.

The battle played out in the news.

Be careful with that pen.

Before we all lose again.
