#VOTE

#‎VOTE‬

In this country ...power and money rules

and a vote is priceless

lobbyist-big phrama ,koch's, monsanto ,

and many more... grease

senatorial and congressional palms

for kick backs and personal favors

politicians are an over paid absentee

workforce with health care ,

paid vacations , and fringe benefits

a cake walk ...all on the citizens tab

disgruntled laypeople

couch surf , blog , and bitch

at the local coffee shop

and on the street corner

yet , about a 1/3 of folk don't vote

the have's campaign

and vote to maintain

their wealth and gain

churches and chapels

houses of faith

host bingo and raffles

keeping all the profits

while passing the collection plate

without paying taxes

meanwhile middle class

and working poor

as well as students

are over worked

taxed and underpaid

holding down two jobs

to pay back student loans

and the cost of living

mom's and dad's single

and /or married couples

with or without children

work triple-time

and they still struggle

to pay for essentials

ie food , child -elder care ,

shelter, and medical

just barely or never quite

making ends meet

an election year

is a powerful one

for everyone

fate of our lives

for the next few years

is decided by our representatives
