Please get out there and vote.
You can make a difference;
time to show your presence.
Help keep this country afloat.

Make your voice heard–emote.
Watch closely for interference.
Please get out there and vote.
You can make a difference.

Let us show our moral code
by practicing tolerance,
and if lines are long, persistence.
If you want to strike a note,
please get out there and vote.
You can make a difference.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
