Ballots and Bluster

by Venky

“Thievery and fraud, coercion and cunning” screamed out one

But “evidence to support the allegation I can find none”

Citizens wolfed down pizzas and imbibed bourbon to ward off sleep

Not knowing, at the unfolding fiasco, whether to laugh or to weep

Judges were hustled to quickly decide many a writ

Experts on media hiding porn notifications while trying to maintain their grit

A democracy from under its feet finds the earth falling away beneath

Put a bloody end to the charade and just BEQUEATH!

(Word Count: 85)
