John-Ward Leighton CD: Bad To Worse

election day in the Excited States
and a selection of
Obama (bad)
Romney (worse)
for the voters
in the quasi democracy
with an electoral college
to make sure that
the mob doesn’t get in the way
of power by the rich and privileged
with rigged computer voting
that gives no written backup
and is easily manipulated
to declare any winner it wants
regardless of the voters’ wishes
and if worse comes to worse
a Supreme Court
to throw out the votes
and arbitrarily declare a winner
the US form of government
resembles that of the Roman Empire
where the populous had many opportunities
to vote
while the emperor (president)
with the praetorian guard (military industrial complex)
can ignore the public will
and engage them in endless elections
to see who gets to feed at the trough
of bribes and outright theft of the public purse
ninety million of the voting public
recognize the futility of the exercise
and don’t bother voting
the “system” is rigged and broken
and only the overthrow of the system
will make any qualitative improvement
to the system of governance
and make it possible to traverse
the current system
which is from
bad to worse.
