Cast Your Vote! (poem)


So they want a poem all sweet and prose

That could be done I suppose

Rather than syrupy words

I chose to write this poem about our world

Elections come and go

Each proclaiming to be our hero

This year another election comes again

Remember your candidate might want capitol gain

I say before you press the lever

To think of Canada’s health care so much better

Yet this country sells medicine triple in price

Some die because money comes before life

Before it happens again, demand your new president

To cover all of our USA residents

      I certainly would move to Canada as soon as possible if it was an option in my life. Seeing savings dwindle from paying $1000 a month for health insurance isn't the right thing and watching medical companies profit from serious illnesses is very disturbing.

      Yes Epi a fantasy is a bedroom done in laces and feminine details, a large chair in front of a fireplace, along side of the ocean, with your book in hand. :)

      ...yes a little education for you ...... Canada's health care system is one of the best in the world and it was invented/created by a man called Tommy Douglas who was the leader of the NDP Party at one time back in the day (it is the working man's party) and in a poll a few years ago - he was voted by the people of our nation as the Greatest Canadian of all time - no wonder - because we all share in it - everyday - thanks to him.

      I love the passion in your writing here and the obvious care and concern you have put into these words.

      Thank you also for supporting me as you do and yes I promise you - one day my book will come out as you are one of my most supportive and loyal followers/fans - and coming from such a very special person like yourself - really means a lot to me - because I am writing for people just like you.

      Sending warm wishes and good energy from a grey day in November.

      Cold too.

      Oh why is that Mhatter? I hope someone does something about health insurance $1,000 a month is totally unacceptable to me but then you can't be without it either.
