Comparison Theory

Politics without comparison

would make for a far less

hostile and egomaniacal landscape,

as the press will pit red against blue—

it seems as long as ratings are on the rise—

until no man is left standing,

so that we’re all watching the Donkey drown

and ignoring the Elephant in the room.

You just have to live.

Being sober’s

as overrated

as being drunk—

nobody wins.

You just have to live.

I Voted

For what exactly

I am not sure

But today I voted

I voted for people who unlike I

Have power

Power to make a difference

Power to make a change

Power to exercise our rights

As a community of working people

We have power

I have power

And you have power

For what exactly

I am not sure

Until tomorrow

VOTE!
