Electronic President

My dear countrymen
I am the president
Electronically elected
By the power of by force

Such a habit
I was given last time
By my enemy friend

This is the global world
Soul and body digitalized
Logic and reason passed away

People are not the element of democracy so far
You people voted secretly
How one can say whether you didn't vote me
Though you people not believed me
I believe you
That is why
I am consulted
To include into my "Thought"
Such a new method

That is the logic of the birth
revolutionary electronic system
You don't want to waste your time
And listen to others

Now you do own your business.
You do keep your demands with you
I do keep my promises with me

I wish to introduce
This system to my neighbors
by assuring after the general election

I must thank to the technology
Being the part of
The symbol of you

So dear countrymen! !
Do listen well!
If someone goes against me
That means against of the modernity
In other words
Digital agents will punish you
Digitalizing the law and order
Lastly I want to say
Be calm and quiet
Peace will be given for you

    such a sarcastic poem! though it should be monitored, I enjoyed reading the outburst of a democratic citizen whose finger is not painted with ink. (Report) Reply
