Voting For Beginners

X marks the spot.
Whether we like it or not.
A simple mark of participation
To decide a future for this nation.

X marks the choice.
A private political voice.
Hard-won for the women,
Though not so much for the boys…

X marks the plebiscite
An inalienable political rite.
A single act of representation
Overwrought with expectation.

X marks the intention:
Endorsement or prevention.
Or if you choose to stay at home,
A consequence of your abstention…


Take your pick of the headlines..
