Vote for Me! -- a voting poem/an election poem

VOTE FOR ME!
by
Gregory K.

Vote for me!
Vote for me!
Everybody vote for me!

I put up my posters. I promised free toasters!
Boy, asking for votes is so fun.

Vote for me!
Vote for me!
Everybody vote for me!

The votes are all in... errr... I guess I’m the winner.
So tell me now... what have I won?


The Poetry Friday links are collected here at Becky's Book Reviews. (And I now have another voting poem, in Fib form, here!)

Oh, I like this. The last two lines are evocative of Shel Silverstein without being derivative.

I'm glad I met you, so now I can read your poems and hear your particular voice in my head. (Then again-- "Help, help! Gregory K. is in my head and he won't leave!")

Oh, I'm in for the toasters. Now, what else are you promising? Pop tarts? Seems like a reasonable campaign promise to me...

Love the poem, I voted for you, too :0) But I do find it funny that you put free toasters in your tag!

And I find it fun that someone noticed I put "free toasters" in my tag! I'm already wondering when the next such tag will come up.

And I definitely like the slogan "A Pop Tart in every toaster!" for a campaign. Get Kellogg's to underwrite your ad buys... keep a few brown sugar cinnamon frosted ones for yourself... it's all good!

G.K. (always willing to leave a head if asked nicely!)
