Over 50 million registered voters are expected

If you want to know where the sweet is, follow the ants

to troop to polling places today.

Not one ever hoards information or loot. They like to share.

 

All in all, nine candidates want to be president

It's hard labor until they die

while eight are vying for the vice-presidency

carrying loads of sweets into protected vaults.

 

There will always be complaints but 85-95%

Others are destined to mate first then die,

success rate will be good enough

others to fight to keep the sweet intact then die.

 

Voter turnout is expected to be higher

But there is one who needs to survive

than the 70% registered during 2004 polls

and for whom they live. The queen who wouldn't quit.

Tony, I tried using metaphor here indirectly.

Joel, this is something that reminds me on your style from earlier, the math poems :) . I mean by its construction, subject, and the sound. And yes is obvious that this is a metaphorical poem, that shows a lot.

 

Very clever written and very reasonable, and thanks to Tony, I looked closely by separating the regular and italic lines, so here we have two different and wonderful poems, in one.

Amazing and well done, Joel.
