Remembering Milton

No-one would vote for
A man that abuses children
Sex and drugs are against the law
When you are talking about them

No-one would vote for
A man who had sex
With a child and a few more
A sane man it would vex

No-one would vote for
A man who gave a child drugs
For someone you weren’t quiet sure
If the man was one of the thugs

No-one would ever vote for
A man that could do it again
Someone who would make a child whore
And think himself still sane

No-one would ever vote for
Someone that you could not trust
To be righteous to one and all
Not led by greed and lust

So why did so many vote for
A man who pleaded guilty 30 times
Of sexually abusing children and more
Giving them drugs for sexual crimes

Just shows you can vote for
Someone no-one could ever know
And give him the keys to your own door
And have your children put on more than a show

So watch out who you vote for
They are more than the words you hear
Not everyone is known to the law
How many more like him to fear

    Great written work from you Gregory.

    It reminded me of R. Kelly and i still cannot understand why so many
    people-mainly African Americans were more willing to protect a musical
    singer above the welfare of an innocent child…unacceptable.

    Great poem-becareful who you vote for.

  • Thanks Journey360. One of those that I wish I didn’ have a subject to write on… Now I know I can’t trust anyone I vote for…
