Poem Friday – 09/21/2012 – It’s Your Future They Are Talking About!


It’s Your Future They Are Talking About!
Author: Lesley Voth

We are right now in the silly season,
Listen, observe, and vote for the right reason.

I am aiming this poem at the young, who can vote,
I am not trying to sway one way or promote.

Think outside of the box; make choices from the head,
Be sure; be comfortable, for the next 4 years, to lie in that bed.

Politicians are traveling all over the place,
Expounding their theories trying to win the Presidential race.

Would you have a lawyer, government employee, or celebrity run your life?
Or would you have a businessman, guide, your children, yourself, and your wife?

Listen to those who live the economy, love America, and add no baloney,
Listen to Varney, Fox News, in the morning, enjoy, he and his guests are no phony.

But it’s your choice as to whom you believe, and where you get your information,
Get over it; ignore the useless slights and digs by each politician’s accusation.

It appears to be normal, but not intelligent, not productive,
It’s media hype, it’s vindictive, it’s nasty, and destructive.

What are the freedoms that they offer you?
Will you be so regulated and taxed, more than you ever knew?

Does he surround himself with a competent crew?
Are his promises shallow or is he of substance, do you believe him to be true?

If you don’t vote then you should never complain,
because others will make your choices, again and again.

You will surely lose the freedoms you are now enjoying,
Your countries entrepreneurial spirit they will be destroying.

You might say… you are an Australian why do you care?
Well, when I am in the America that I love, My Harley and I, your roads we share.

And, because I am old enough to remember America, its pride, and its glory,
its wealth, its strength, its confidence, what a great story.

Nothing is free in this life you will find.
It’s the choice to work, be rewarded, be passionate, play and unwind.

Go vote, be heard, be sure, and don’t doubt,
It’s your future they are talking about.
