an elder electoral perspective

Written by: andrew delapruch

mom says she can’t wait
till’ the election is over.

mom says she’s sick of 
hearing them talk.

mom says they’re reading from 
the same script, only using different
words.

mom says she’d rather they both
just walk.

mom says that dad is scared of
the man who believes in joseph smith,
having his finger on the button
telling us all that being poor is not his
problem.

mom says dad’s sick of hearing the
president talk of problems instead of
solving em’.

mom says it will get better, that it 
won’t always be this insane.

mom says she’ll be dead sooner than
later,
so she doesn’t care
anyway.
