ODE ON A PAPER BALLOT. After my experience at the poll this morning, I wrote the following "Ode On a Paper Ballot" and submitted it to the Washington Post's "Election-Day Odes" online forum.
I went to the poll to vote
And it really got my goat
To get a paper ballot--
“Mark darkly to be valid”--
Instead of a machine
That makes the process clean.
I strayed outside the oval,
Considered starting over,
But walked away just wondering
How many would be blundering?
