The Undecided Voter

A radical Oompa Loompa or a Wealthy little liar…

Ah I can’t decide; I think my brain is on fire!

What about Jill Stein, she agrees with my stance!

Nah on other hand she doesn’t stand a chance

Bernie was defeated and Biden won’t run,

3 terms for Obama now that would be fun!

But then the GOP will be all like… He’s trying to take our guns!

 

Hillary “pharmaceutical sellout” will ruin our reputation

but a reign of Donald Trump that’s like an insult to our nation!

 

They all claim to love the country… but they won’t listen to the voice

So in turn they turn us over and leave us with no choice

 

We yell like crazy till our lungs beg us to stop

And then we take a step back and repeat from the top!

 

“Yo! It’s the youth, you know the one getting screwed!

Could you take like a five minute and listen to us too!”

 

Or did you already decide that our opinion does not matter?

Because if that’s the case then this is pointless chatter!

 

Speak up? Speak up! I’m trying to speak up!

Oh settle down, be quiet…. Shut my mouth…well

I promise you… I’m trying, but I just can’t right now!

 

I think I’m losing control! And with my thoughts on a roll

This political puppet show is about to take a toll!
The spices are being added to this giant salad bowl

You can feel the intensity as it dashes through your soul!

 

And yes I said salad! So toss away the melting pot

Because the smell is going sour, and it’s getting way too hot!

 

Stop assimilating us, I don’t think we fit in

The ingredients don’t match and the recipe’s too big!

Someone fire the chefs, and ask them to think!

Because where I’m standing from fairness does not exist!

And the authority claims thunder, but it’s as scary as a mist

It’s not hard hitting… it lacks power in the fist

When it comes to getting to the point – it already missed!

So it’s just been added to the “we need help” list

 

Hello puppet master! – Can we get some attention!

Or do we have to go and party maybe I’ll crash a convention

But then then I’ll get a conviction…

And pick up and addiction,

because no-one hires hungry people when they’re strait out of prison

You may wonder why, but that’s just the system!

And the system we have… this system just doesn’t listen.

 

And right now I have about a million questions

Who are you voting for?

Will you benefit the rich – or will you help out the poor?

 

And what’s the deal with abortion?

Are all children sacred or do we need another portion?

 

Religion and Education… Should they be on the same plate?

Gosh what am I talking about – these sound like plans for a date….

 

But it’s not that simple! This rock that we are dropping

It WILL cause a ripple

Despite the simple fact… that it sounds like a riddle

 

Option A or B

I think that I’ll pass

Plus, it’s getting late and I have to get to class!

 

I just turned 17 there’s no need for this stress!

I’ll just let the current voters pick up this mess….

 

Good luck with the headache… I know you’re going to need it

And if you can’t take the pain I suggest that you beat it.

 

This is the undecided voter… peace and I’m out

Take a piece of knowledge with you and vote without a doubt

I mean… it’s democracy let’s be proud, let’s be loud

Don’t sweat it… that’s just the fate of the youth in your hand right now!

Even though I disagree with your stance, this is a very well-written poem, and it was a joy to see such thoughts displayed in an almost lyrical matter. As I read it I could feel your poem's own rhythm come out. Keep writing.
