Early Voting

Article link: Michelle: Vote Early Because Your Toilet May Be Overflowing on Election Day

I’ve got to vote early.
I’ve got to be sure,
As something may happen
For me to endure.
My father might perish.
My kid could get sick.
I might be disabled
By horses that kick.
A privy malfunction
Could keep me at bay,
And leave me unable
To vote on that day.
My engine might seize up.
My car could be wrecked.
I might be beset
By a bibulous sect.
So sometime this evening,
A bit after work,
I’ll pull on my jacket
And go see the clerk.
Then nothing shall stop me
From casting my vote,
For Biden, Obama,
And government bloat.

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
