Do you think it’s like ballet

Pirouette
cast your vote
get results.

let’s all go to
the dumb down
station
so
simple it insults
imagination.

that’s what they rely on
I
think that it’s a try on.
and
we’re the ones being
put upon.

and you’ve got to pick the
right one
sort through all the lies.

What ties  up the manifesto
is the rope
they’ll hang you with,
don’t give them the
opportunity.

Anyway
did you vote today?
did you have your say?
I did.
