Election Year

Coke or Pepsi?
Make your choice.
Don’t waste your vote,
you have a voice.

this year will be
a great election
Don’t tell me
there’s no selection.

the shelves are full
the aisles are packed
from floor to ceiling
varieties stacked

Pepsi in bottles
Coke in cans
So many choices
just two brands

look at all
the different sizes
all tastes the same
so no surprises

What’s that you say
you don’t like cola.
Are you a
tree-hugging, granola?

you’ll learn to like it
wait and see
it’s the sweet taste
of democracy
