Election Questions


Will it prove fatal to get out and vote?
What if there is no harmonious note
In the election that’s surely to come?
Will I be gaping and feeling quite dumb?

  1. Interesting leadership choices in many parts of the world… true 🙂

      In the U.S., “interesting” might be an understatement!

  2. I think whether we vote or not the world can leave us feeling gaping and dumb – though not as dumb as most candidates – maybe that’s the whole problem – sigh

      I think you’ve stated the problem quite nicely, Jae! 😉

  3. I hope feeling numb and dumb is the worst possible result–and that the elections to come are not fatal! I love this poem as it breaks the rules and leaves us gaping!

      Thank you, Susan. I do covet my role as a rule breaker! 😉

  4. It is said we get the governments we deserve. Sadly as you look around the world you see how true that is for we are selfish and greedy and willing to be manipulated by rhetoric among other things.

      I will never understand the human “need” to be manipulated by politicians.

  5. aha, the wavering mind as the date approaches…i think at the end of the day we’re all dumb…sigh…

  6. I’m sire a lot of people feel that way but as my father used to say you can’t complain of you don’t vote. and if you cast your vote at least you tried.

  7. You are between a rock and a hard place. But Trumpage cannot be allowed, so yes, vote. Do it for me! I am going mad up here in Canada, just watching and listening.

  8. I already feel pretty dumb. But, I’ll vote.

  9. good questions to arm the voter

    much love…

  10. fatal … Wow. That’s a scary possibility. I hadn’t considered it being that extreme, but you’re right.

  11. We must vote and live peaceably with the outcome. Otherwise, why the charade of civilization? Good ideas here.

  12. Ha! Ultimately, it transforms the voters into useful idiots….Brilliant, MMT!

  13. What with an outsider like Trump as a choice. He was not in contention when they started but he made significant inroads. He might win yet!


  14. The omens are not good, not good at all. :-/
