Two Hillbillies Talk Politics

Hillbilly Election

by Dustman6180

Are you a plannin' to vote, Lamore?
By gosh, I'm plannin' to.
Can ya tell me who ya votin' for?
Don't rightly know just who.

Every vote should count, you know?
For sure, you're probly right.
Good grief! Decide before you go!
Heck, I've got until tonight.

I just thought by now you'd know that.
Just don't, that's all there be.
Katie's a votin' for the democrat.
Likes the Liberal type, does she?

Must, 'cause it's obvious her plan.
Nice guy, I do suppose.
Or else, he's just a good lookin' man.
Perhaps, who really knows.

Quince is going Republican.
Really? That's not a fib?
Sure is. Believe it if ya can.
That's a shock, He seems the Lib.

Up yonder way, they counted chads.
Votin' ain't no easy chore.
Why? Don't they still use writing pads?
X's ain't used no more.

Yawn. I'm so tired, I feel so spent...
Zzzzzz. ( Lamore for president...)
