poetry from warren adler


“Choices” as read by Warren Adler

Don’t despair at the present state of affairs

Our country simply needs emergency repairs

We made some errors in our past elections

And need to make some urgent corrections

So next time you get to cast your vote

Of this idea you must take note

Don’t re-elect your last time choices

And look around for smarter voices

Who will sing the songs of our people’s desire

And not those off key tunes from another choir

It is time to dump those less brave and true

And send them off to Tumbuktu.
