The Election with Single-Use Pencils

In considering
what can be thrown away,
make it the viral

pencil, not a
vote for those with lead in theirs
and other lies

about delivering.
And these are not for colouring in –
so, if within

red walls,
keep yours true and not fooled
by shades

of shadiness:
that politicking of the self,
their mates,

and cronies all.
‘Single-use’ is wonderfully woke, if
awake when you choose.
