Mid-Term Primary

_____________________________________

Sisters before me fought for the right

Not all that many years ago

Empowering us with legal might

I’m not willing to forgo

Mid-term, special, general or primary

If there’s a ballot to be cast I’ll cast one

Even when all of the options are scary

I’ll keep voting til my breath is the last one

*

Some say it’s a duty, that you’re morally bound

I understand it’s a choice

For some it’s an inconvenient run-around

For me, the quietest way to raise my voice

“Every vote counts” some people scoff, well I believe that it’s true

Some believe the candidate is pulling a fast one

But with my polling station I have a rendezvous

I’ll keep voting til my breath is the last one.
