Autumn Poems for Kids - Children's Election Day PoetryWhere Allegiance Lies

by Del "Abe" Jones

I hear some people talking politics
And, can’t believe some things I hear
They’re so blinded by allegiances
They won't seek out, the truth, they fear.

They won’t try to see past the lies
Won’t believe, (although they know)
The path of their favored Party
Is not where, they really want to go.

But, rather than do the right thing
Follow, that feeling in their gut
They’ll vote how their Party says
And they stay, in the same old rut.

Sometimes, for the good of all
And, that is all, well and fine
But, even if it hurts everyone
They’ll just go with, the Party line.

Our two Party system is broken
It’s just the red against the blue
And those who run our politics
Don’t care what’s best for me or you.

Some States can even force you
To declare, for one or the other
When you might want to vote, both
One for one, the next, for another.

When they get behind in the polls
That’s when the bs really starts to fly
It’s one ad, then a counter ad
And in most of them, the truth, slips by.

We condone it with our silence
They don’t care about the truth
They’ll use any means to get votes
For their Party, in the booth.

What is the best for our Country?
Is he/she really up to the task?
Am I really voting for the best?
(Some questions, that some, never ask.)

The Great Experiment is failing
And, the fault is yours and mine
It’s time we all thought for ourselves
And stepped across, that Party line.

We Pledge Allegiance to America
That, should be our single, sacred vow
We must clean up, this mess we made
And the best time to start, is, right now!
