Elections are like home invasions-
The minute you turn on TV
Your home is filled with pols whose suasions
Want you to vote them nominee.
You could turn off the television
But sit there trapped in indecision.
And while you do you’re overrun.
You can’t fall back on 911.
Now, listening to their histrionics,
You’re overcome and so you vote
To buy their promissory note.
Then while you’re sipping gin and tonics,
They’re back again and like King Lear
You find yourself out on your ear.
