Just Days Before Election   Leave a comment

Just days before election  

I’m standing at the door 

Passing out the candy 

To spooks, gooks, and more

 

With my early ballot cast 

I’m thinking to myself 

What a year it has been 

And It happened all so fast 

 

With my bowl full of treats 

For little tricksters, costumed and masked 

I greet them all with smiles 

Holding their bags full of sweets 

 

And I think and I pray 

What will life be like  

For us all this time next year? 

After another Election Day? 

 

Will it be a mixed bag full of promises made? 

Or all we expect or hoped it to be? 

Or will it be full of tricks or treats? 

But who knows? The future we cannot see.
