The Election

America has made its choice
And many people will rejoice.
For those who chose to disagree,
There’s one thing that’s a guarantee – 

Electioneering’s finally done;
The battle fought, the victor won.
So let’s set enmity aside – 
Democracy exemplified.

It’s time for each community
To take this opportunity
To come together and unite;
Then everything will be all right.

At least we’ve heard our last debate
And ads designed to denigrate.
The moment’s come for switching gears;
We’ll vote again in four more years.

    Your third stanza made me want to say it like a munchkin. :) It's nice not to be inundated with all the back biting. God bless these red and blue states of disgrace.

    Yes, we can breathe tv is no longer held captivate... I wish people will learn to love and respect each other. Whether we like it or not, we're in ONE boat...sink or swim are our two choices. Great job, Ilene. Love, Annalise

    I hope your guy won. I liked the President's acceptance speech. Based on your Poem you must have been listening when he spoke.
