Election fever 

Election fever,

An illness striking the nation,

Engulfing all that is near.

Spreading faster than fire.

.

And each lier,

Puts themselves on the stage.

Our rage,

hidden behind the screens

As they make each pointless promise,

.

And claim to be honest,

The evidence is clear,

Our fear,

is calmed through a cross in a box

Pretending that pencil cannot be erased.

.

We are engaged,

Through child-like debates

We wait,

for a competent ruler.

But they’re always so far from the stand.

.
Make way as politicians demand,

Their own pay raise,

Our cries,

ignored once the vote is complete

As we introduce the least evil leader.

.
Election fever,

Has the symptoms of lies and deceit.

They cheat,

But we close our eyes

With a glimmer of hope

it will be different next time.
