Do You Pledge Your Allegiance? by thepumpkin-queen

Conscientious Resistance

Some say
I am wasting my vote
I’m a poet
read into what I wrote
See, I am withholding
my ballot
in peaceful protest
boycotting the American swill
if you will
the best of the best

It is my vote
after all
and only I decide
where it falls
My right to vote includes
my right to abstain
even if it’s all in vain

The lesser of two evils
is an offensive proposition
If you want me to cast
show me someone
with a position
I can vote for
rather than against
