Election Poem for the Planet

Heard this on NPR this morning, and it kind of got me looking past the partisan BS and into the actual heart of what makes America great.

John Greenleaf Whittier's "The Poor Voter on Election Day."


To-day, of all the weary year,
A king of men am I.
To-day, alike are great and small,
The nameless and the known;
My palace is the people's hall,
The ballot-box my throne!
The rich is level with the poor,
The weak is strong to-day;
And sleekest broadcloth counts no more
Than homespun frock of gray.
To-day let pomp and vain pretence
My stubborn right abide;
I set a plain man's common sense
Against the pedant's pride.
The wide world has not wealth to buy
The power in my right hand!

Sullying an American classic with your foul pop culture references. Indicative of what's wrong with the whole process.

Sorry bastard.

Did you borrow that 'ivory tower' from the O'Reilly collection?

How come the first two lines and the last two lines don't rhyme with anything? That rubs me raw.

I wrote that without realizing the direction this thread has taken. Batter up.
