Title: "Thoughts In Verse"
By George A. Wiens

ELECTION DAY IS COMING


ELECTION DAY IS COMING.
LISTEN TO THE CANDIDATE'S PLEA.
YOU MUST MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION
WHICH YOU WISH THE WINNER TO BE.

THE CHOICE IS INDIVIDUAL.
THE RIGHT TO VOTE WAS WON.
THE CANDIDATES ARE MANY,
THE WINNER---ONLY ONE.

OUR HERITAGE WAS COSTLY,
TO BRING ABOUT AND HOLD.
THERE ARE THOSE WHO WOULD DESTROY IT,
OF THESE, WE ARE SELDOM TOLD.

THE PROMISES ARE MANY,
THEY FLOW LIKE RIVERS BOLD.
THE CANDIDATES SPEND FORTUNES
UNTIL THEY THINK YOU ARE SOLD.

THE CANDITATE THAT YOU VOTE FOR
MUST BE JUDGED ON HIS ACTS AND DEEDS.
NOT ON HIS FLOWERY PROMISES,
BUT WILL HE MEET YOU NEEDS.

TO CAST YOUR VOTE UNWISELY,
IS TO SAY THAT YOU DO NOT CARE
ENOUGH TO CHECK THE RECORD
THAT YOUR CANDIDATE MUST BEAR.

HIS PLATFORM MAY BE GLORIOUS.
HIS INTENTIONS MAY BE GRAND,
BUT IF HE CANNOT DELIVER,
HE'S NOT THE ONE TO LEAD THIS LAND.

ASK "GOD" IN HEAVEN TO GUIDE YOU,
AS YOU CAST YOUR EVERY VOTE,
FOR HE HELPED TO FOUND THIS COUNTRY
ON A FIRM AND FAITHFUL NOTE.

BE SURE THAT THE ONE YOU VOTE FOR
HAS THE COURAGE AND INTEGRITY
TO LEAD THIS COUNTRY WISELY
AND ABOVE ALL---TO KEEP US FREE.

THE RIGHT TO VOTE IS PRECIOUS.
IT COULD BE TAKEN AWAY.
SO PLACE YOUR VOTE WITH CAUTION,
BUT, BE SURE THAT YOU VOTE THAT DAY.
