With 59 days left to the 2016 Presidential Election, most people have had their decision made for several months. But there are hold-outs – some are still researching issues and exploring their options. This poem is for the ones who dare to wait.

Undecided Voters

you get a lot of flack

(especially this season)

for taking time

to make up your mind

the right choice

seems to obvious

to almost everyone

(they don’t agree on what that choice is but at least they agree on that)

but at least they agree on that)

can’t you see

how truly terrible

the other side’s candidate is?

haven’t you heard about


well maybe, just maybe,

these partisan

Judgy McJudgersons

should consider the possibility

that you HAVE seen all the facts

and that

is exactly

the problem
