I Know Who You Voted For – Written April 2020 (Aged 45)

I Know Who You Voted For

they say,
do not talk about politics
when,
politics have pulled us to this point
now with our leader
we must anoint
they say,
ignore the choice i made
when i stood in the booth
and placed my card in a ballot box
you vote,
you pull up your socks
and the buck looks at you
and it firmly stops
they say,
do not talk about politics
when politics is our lives
this event illustrates the folly
the outcome of government that is cheaper
we have been stung
and you are the beekeeper
they say,
do not talk about politics
they would rather bury their heads
as we slowly become sick




James Garratt – April 2020
