My Ballot Paper

I have long waited 
This sunny day
To chide myself

Should I cast for this clown
Who with dripping mouth
Sang his electorate his ambitions?

Or this home-made angel
Who with wings of kites
Would myrrh his disciples?

And then again I wonder
Should the heavens rock
Who will restrain the storm?

So I take the little ballot
And with raging words
In verse expend my anguish!
