Don't Forget to Vote!!
You know, for that guy who knocked on your door last week, or handed you a flyer as you went into the subway. Who promises to keep local taxes at bay and increase funding for schools and keep guns off the street. The one who, when eleceted, will be stuck in his office behind a pile of papers attached to his seat by rolls and rolls of red tape, only allowed out for photo ops with babies and the elderly.
The one who grew up listening to his father talk about JFK like he was god, and became convinced he could change the world. The one who, when he entered college- valedictorian of his senior class- had his schedule mapped out to the minute, and pledged the fraternity that would get him the farthest in life. The one who, as a junior, did lines of coke in the basement of his frat house and date-raped a freshman who, till this day, cannot enjoy the touch of a man. The one who has a PhD in some BS political field and interned for his local congressman, still believing he could make a difference; so desperately wanting to make a difference to atone for past sins.
Don't forget to vote for that guy, the one who has long since forgoten the reason he got into politics in the first place. Who only wants to have a job that will keep his mortgage paid, his wife happy and his mistress in check.
That guy, that's who you need to vote for. Today.
yes, the lessons are all around us and a change is waiting there
so it's time to pick through the rubble, clean the streets
and clear the air
get our government to pull its big dick out of the sand
of someone else's desert
put it back in its pants
and quit the hypocritical chants of
