Tricks and Treats
Don’t be frightened by the monsters
in television ads promising prosperity
and predicting pandemonium.
Don’t be frightened by the beggars
in your email, requesting treats
to prevent someone else’s tricks.
Don’t be frightened by politics,
be angry that money decides elections
instead of We the People.
Election Day is three weeks and a day away and I’m very angry. I’ve been encouraging my fellow citizens to vote and now it’s time. I plan to vote early, in person, next Monday. Have you already mailed in your ballot? What’s your plan to vote?
