Democracy

Yesterday we witnessed
The biggest day of sports,
Which makes all the cups and series
Completely out of sorts.

It had been hyped for months
By that unbiased ad
Run by one guy, who says the other
Is really, really bad.

In yesterday’s match, two teams
Faced off to see just who
Got the pleasure of controlling
Their State, Country, and You.

The elephants and donkeys
Kicked and spat and grrred
And threw mud at each other
As if mud were an angry bird.

And then the fans arrived
To dance around the polls
While others searched on Google
For nearby grassy knolls.

The match begins! The ballots flow!
Single lines are drawn!
Proposed measures are considered!
The game continues on.

And at the end both teams will claim
That it is they who won the game.
Then it’s done; That’s all she wrote.
Aren’t you glad you got to vote?
