Next Season’s Cancellations

 

Next Season’s Cancellations

Riches may not always be all you might expect,
for one thing that cash can’t buy is genuine respect.
One, in fact, that we are daily driven to inspect
daily causes masses to rise up and object.

Clearly something’s rotten, and we often get a whiff
of that decay in Washington that we’ll prove only if
we repossess the country that we’ve so clearly sold
at the ballot boxes, making choices that are bold.

Our country’s not a boxing ring, a bout or match or race.
Voting’s not a sport. It is a simple act of grace.
We should not vote on people, entertaining or magnetic,
whose ridiculous antics are crazy and frenetic.

Vote for those who truly have our country’s good at heart—
those with sincere values: charitable and smart.
Leaders not afraid to interrupt the status quo
to make our country more than a cheap reality show.

If you are considering not voting because you are tired of the fray or think it won’t make a difference, please read the following article and reconsider:

Prompt words today are object, whiff, magnetic and grace.  Here are the links:

    I’ve already sent in my ballot — hoping that my selections are

    Leaders not afraid to interrupt the status quo
    to make our country more than a cheap reality show.

    When you hear the early results of the California polling, my vote will be in that group — mail-in votes are the first reported.

    If I don’t vote it won’t matter. Maybe if YOU don’t vote it won’t matter. But the collective non-voting of large masses of people — THAT MATTERS. We ALL need to vote because that’s how our country works. If we don’t, it will only get worse and I can barely imagine how bad that will be for all of us.
