Poem #39: “A Cry for Independents”

Okay, it’s the eve of the election and, rightly or wrongly, here’s a poem reflecting on my impression of it….

A Cry for Independents

Once again
our choice is limited
to two unworthy candidates
chosen by others—

one apparently corrupt
the other seemingly insane
(or so they say
about each other)—

and none of the rest
have a chance of winning
because only two parties
have the power and money
to buy the votes they need
to win.
