Chosen Words

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 by The Press in Opinion

‘To Vote or Not To Vote’

To vote or not to vote

That is the question

Whether it is better

to refrain from voicing

our opinion

Or living with the results

of our decisions

Is something each

citizen of voting age

has to decide

Could it be that you

have always voted for

the WRONG man?

To that, I reply,

Elect a woman!

Could it be that you

feel your vote

will not count?

It will if you

are registered!

Could it be that

you are disappointed

with the quality

of each candidate?

Think of how each of us

has disappointed

someone at some time

We are so fortunate, are we not,

to live in this land

where we are free

to vote our conscience?

Ah, yes,

OUR CONSCIENCE

That is what compels us...

compels us once again

TO VOTE.
