Poetry for the Undecided

Darke County Senior Scribes...
Poetry and a Yard Sign for the Undecided
By Lois Wilson 
February  2, 2012 

“I noticed these four candidates had short names that could be interlocked,” Senior Scribes Poet Laureate Lois Wilson said. “So many voters are still undecided… so I created a yard sign for them.” 

Wilson put her talents to work and created a few verses that millions of voters could probably read and say… “That’s me!”


PUTTING IT TOGETHER 

Sometimes when we’ve heard all the candidates

And we still like none—

We wish we could take their best points

And make the ideal one!

YOU DON’T MEAN IT? 

I hear the candidates’ policies.

I study their views and expertise.

Thinking I know all their spins and tricks,

I choose one that puts me most at ease—

But he soon caves to carrots and sticks

As policies fall to politics 

               Lois E. Wilson

ON THE STUMP 

Many a politician

Is good at transposition.

They will tell you left is right—

Down is up and out of sight.

They’re shrewd at how they weave it;

You sense they don’t believe it.

As you look them in the eye,

Try to learn what is a lie. 

                Lois E. Wilson
