Election Reality – Poem

Election Reality


As glee turns to gloom

In the stroke of a pen

Ballot papers

Crash in the box


Supporters all cheer

While clenching their fists

And sweat gathers

In socks


They await the count

As the tellers tot up and tension grows in the room

Aspirations and hopes

Hang on anxious threads yearning to lift the gloom


Who can tell the outcome?

The people have spoke

The arrogant fall

The certainty is broke

Now’s not the time

For the bold to choke!!



I'd like to hear from you...
