I voted……..in my sleep.
Stood in line with the other sheep
as we were prodded, one by one.
Oh I voted, but I voted for none.
Yes, into that voting booth, I went,
made my mind up to some extent.
I threw my ballot on the dirty floor,
said I’d never vote for a war whore.
And that no bigot would get my vote,
I’d rather drown in a goddamn moat.
The security guards escorted me out,
told me I was crazy, without a doubt.
But that’s okay because I had my say
on the 8th of November; election day!
Don’t do as I did and vote in your sleep,
head out the door like good little sheep.
Cast your vote for your favorite clown,
and I’ll sit back and watch as you drown
in piles of shit that they fling your way,
because you voted on election day!

This election, I refuse to participate in a farce. I could have voted. I’m no felon, but I chose to leave my voting status where it has been for the past three years, sitting on the rolls in Virginia where I no longer reside and never will again.
I hear whines and complaints from the Democrats that the ‘Black vote’ is not what they would wish it to be. Shut the fuck up because you lousy ass dogs have used us in numerous election years and we’ve got nothing to show for it. Black people dutifully show up at the polls and vote for the Dems as though they are some wonderful saviors that are coming to our rescue when nothing could be further from the truth. If the Democratic Party was of any use to Black people, we would not have a school-to-prison pipeline to show for our voting for Barack Insane Obama. We would not have millions of Black people incarcerated on bullshit drug charges feeding the ‘For Profit’ prison slavery system. We would not have gentrification running unchecked throughout this hellhole. We would not have horrific unemployment statistics, income inequality, unbelievable poverty, homelessness, inadequate health care and the list is endless. If your vote benefitted you, Black people, then it would show and from where I sit, it shows that you have no reason in the world to vote. It matters not who is at the helm of this lopsided, sinking, stinking shithole barge, you’ll never see one ounce of support for what’s needed to help descendants of slaves in this shithole.
For once in your life, send a message to the Democrats. Tell them by your lack of support, to go fuck themselves!
