Election Day

As I read this by TheFeatheredSleep, the polls where I live in the Eastern Time Zone will close in about 50 minutes. Even here, there’s still time. If you are in line here at 7:30, you will get to vote. The farther West you live, the more time you have to get there. DO IT! VOTE!

I tried to talk to people about matters that were important

they said; Yes, yes, I’m listening

and desperately sought a way out

but when it comes to your time to talk about what you

find vital

I bet that bar is well-worn and you sit deep in your drink

discussing and pontificating your subjects

like the right to shoot deer out of season and why
