Did You Vote Yet

The sweet little old lady had come to cast her vote
But we had to turn her away with a lump in our throat
She had neglected to keep up with elections for years
To care for a dear loved one, a sad story on the doorstep of tears
She had finally had time to do something just for herself
But voting is not something you can just keep on a shelf
The Post Office doesn’t forward your VR card though you think it could
And the DMV doesn’t change your voter address though you think it should
Voter registration was cancelled as her cards were returned
Another example of how some life lessons are thus hard learned
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE in maintaining your precious voting rights
That’s why our colonials went to war putting redcoats in their sights
Every election matters and every vote counts, is our way
Don’t forget to cast your ballot come next election day


About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
