I Voted

Yes, I voted
Gotta say
Walking out of the poll
A weird expression struck my face

I'd been blinded to think this would work
I felt lazy, all I did was a little research for what?
Why? Then I marked on a paper and put it in a box?
I actually felt momentary relief....
Moments back, nerves are back to squeeze

It just doesn't work this way
Casting some votes every term 
Hoping that someone else will fix things?
They're not mad scientists trying to cure a diseases germs

Stop passing the buck.
If your gonna vote for change
You better change your ways
Or you'll find yourself in the same place stuck
