Election 08 (Poem) - Poem by Dave Tanguay
The time is drawing nearer - the time to cast our vote.
Those running for office are at each other’s throat.
A seat in the oval office is what they seek
For the title of commander in chief - so to speak
Promises, promises, that’s what we all hear
However, will they deliver if elected - are they sincere?
Their speeches sound great - only do they speak their own
Or are they all written by some high scholar nerds
Yes I will cast my vote - for it’s the American way
I just hope I’m not just another victim being led astray
Our founding fathers created this system for us to live by
Still we find it so hard to see - eye to eye
Every four years it’s the same old story
Politicians line up - for they claim to want to serve old glory
It’s not a perfect system to elect our officials to serve
But it’s the best one we have - our constitution we must
