You Are Who You Vote For - Poem by Francis Duggan

The people we elect to Govern us more about us do say
Than we ourselves can or so 'twould seem that way
As we vote for the people to whom we relate
As our own image in them we do seem to create
If you vote for one who is racist of you it does say
That you too must be a racist in your own narrow way
For if not so then why would you bother at all
To vote for those in their ways so very small
If you vote for war lovers you must see war as okay
And respect for those you see as different you have no wish to pay
You are who you vote for since you vote for who in you believe
And if you say differently your own self you do deceive
And though with you are who you vote for you may not agree
I only state here how it does seem to me.
