Susie and Sandy Make a Mistake

A reader, Dr. Peter Coppinger, wrote the following bedtime poem for his infant twins and emailed it to me.  It’s lovely.

“Susie and Sandy Make a Mistake.”

It was the first day of school and the children could vote,
On the lunchtime vegetable they wanted most.

Broccoli or beans were the only choice,
Then Susie and Sandy raised their loud voice.

“Beans are okay, but broccoli is terrible!

“We want a third choice on the lunchtime table!

“We’ll vote for carrots, yes, that’s what we’ll do!
“We’ll make a big point, even though we will lose.

The votes were counted until the day was done,
And to their dismay, the beans lost by one.

Now they were stuck eating broccoli all year,
The option that Susie and Sandy most feared.

“We voted our conscience!” they said standing tall.
Their friends said, “Whatever. You just fucked us all.”

Eat your heart out, Digital Cuttlefish.  Also, get out there and vote tomorrow!
