All Votes Must Be Counted And Tabularized

 

Our voices have been stymied, choked off, obstructed

Forever. Let every single vote be counted and tabulated

All must live up and adhere to the democratic principles

Let the vote counters do their jobs. The real exit polls

Are taking place now.  Everybody’s votes are important

Everybody’s voices must be heard; we are adamant

About that. Let’s the hard working volunteers do their jobs

We will have a NEW soon. Let our fighters use the big jabs.

Leave the indefatigable clerks alone, let them count the ballots

Stop the nonsense. Quit acting belligerent in the parking lots

All votes must be counted. Democracy is a meticulous process

Be patient. It takes time and resiliency to see and reap its success

Our voices must be heard. Democracy has its particular finesse.
