Vote

Not
As it makes no difference
It's all done with mirrors and smoke
A ballot's a joke
Ticking a box gives it no credence
All choices are made behind scenes
Where we've never been
And glossed up for masses acceptance

No matter what we say
A greedy few will have their way...

Politics
Standing in a booth with a stump of pencil
Staring at slogans and boxes and liars
Frowning at the BNP, whose tagline screams
"A vote for democracy," which seems disingenuous.

Agonising, hesitating, procrastinating
Flashbacks to a younger, glibber me moralising
"If you don't vote then you haven't got a say," I say
But what happens when no-one's talking your language?

Alternative title "I'll just stick a cross in the box next to the tories to make sure they don't get it" rejected on grounds of being in the wrong register.

Good to have you back.

Indeed - not sure how long this will last - quite sure I'll end up in a white room, so need to vent and air and spew a few more times to let the pressure out...

And X = No ...so why do we vote with an X ?
