Poem: Election Blues

By: Edward Ahern


There’s something about power
That draws the worst of men,
and puts their aberrations
on magnified display.

There’s something about supporters
who vote for a defective
yet claim to own what’s right,
and cope in the surreal.

There’s something about nonvoters
even worse than pros and antis,
on a passive ride to governance
they will regret and hate.
