Feeling blue but voting red? . . . . .


It was a strange election indeed, not like any other I had seen in all my 91 years. When it came down to it I had lots of reasons not to vote. Here is a brief summary I wrote and put on Facebook:


The Election

I said I would vote

For the lesser  of  evils.

I said I would listen and

Study, compare.

I said I would vote for

The one who would lead us.

l said I would listen,

I said I’d be fair.

But when it came down to

The moment of choice

I must tell you my true heart

Must be the confessor.

I tried, but I couldn’t find

One who was faultless,

I tried but I couldn’t find

One who was lesser.


And when the election was over I posted this:

Note to Canadian Border Patrol: Watch closely. Some who are

crossing over are legitimate. But some are just actors.
