Voting

The soul feels dirty
It seems every choice is evil
Fascism seems the word of the day
However this voter lives in a one party world

The heart worries about what happens
Hearing so many words of hatred
So many people spreading blame
One fears the duty of ‘ten minutes of hate’

It seems everyone raises the banner
Talks about what it means to be a patriot
Suggests that others do not love country
Suggests that country has no room for the others

The heart wonders if rhetoric has become true
People speaking evil of one another
Words calling for violence
Everyone seeking a scapegoat to sacrifice

The heart fears taking part in this evil
Yet the conscience insist on protecting the innocent
