22 Jun 2016 – Vote

You’ve mindlessly recited it by rote:
“the lesser of two Evils gets my vote!”

But what if you’ve been all along deceived,
and now your hands are stained with filthy deeds.

Asleep most days, awaking just for one
to cast a ballot (thinking you were done),

and Heaven each Election Day took note:
you countenanced great Evil with your vote.
