poem challenge: Election 2020

Joe Biden/Kamala Harris 2020

Okay, so normally,
I'm impartial when asking people to go to the polls.
It doesn't matter if you're red or blue,
young or kinda old.
But voting blue this year 
is not about being political.
It's saying that you give a
crap about our nation's very soul.
You are priviledged if this year 
your rights aren't on the line,
so if you care about minorities' rights,
throw away your Trump sign.
If you like the president, just hear me out
before you decide.
Take COVID, for example.
So many have died.

He refuses to condemn white supremacy,
which we all know is horrible.
He tries to take away abortion rights,
which is absolutely deplorable.
His racist statements precede him.
And he hasn't apologized.
He knew how bad COVID was in January
and he didn't even try
to fix America
or should I say, to Make it Great Again.
Do you really think America's better 
in the middle of this pandemic?

So this election, I'm begging you:
Please vote for Joe.
Yes, he isn't perfect,
but he knows where we need to go.
So if you really care about America
and are the patriot you claim,
you are voting Biden/Harris
and telling your friends to do the same.

I'm begging you to please 
look at the facts and do your research.
Trump has had four years,
but left America in the lurch.

There's only a few days left
before Election Day.
So make 1000% sure you vote
or you don't get a say.

Please vote for Joe. Our future depends on it.
