Got a chuckle out of this one. I think blindness is a prerequisite when voting and you picked all the right words my friend.

What a great job you did with this. I was astonished at the vile attacks of the candidates against each other this year here in Alabama. After all he said, the loser in one race then asked all the "rally around" his opponent whom he has cast as Satan incarnate only hours before. Elton

I really like your take on this theme, Robert, mixing the political with the disclaimers of the medical commercials we see everyday. Great win! Dan C

This should not be just poetry, but expanded into a skit or a short performance piece. It has the savage bite of the most wicked satrire and it echoes. I like this! Regards, Gerard.
