Time to knock on doors and enroll voting slackers—
those who might “save the nation” by turning
districts from Republican to Democrat.
Democracy requests we walk about and talk to
each other. And what if we were curious enough
to talk with people instead of to them?
We could be the emulsifiers, the eggs who make
temporary blends of oil and water more permanent—
at least tasty—through upcoming elections.
Or, do you (like me) know we are the eggs but fail
to join the mix? Wake up at noon and watch TV,
eat mayonnaise on white bread—or walk
In various wildernesses—forgetting that
neighbors are also nature—and, communing
with trees and birds, think we’re free?
