118,522 Disenfranchised Voters in L.A.

One hundred, eighteen thousand, five twenty two,

The number of Los Angelenos who

Arrived at their polling stations to vote,

Here’s what they were all told, please do take note:

Your name isn’t listed, sorry to say,

“A printing error”, you’ll not vote today.

Fill out a provisional ballot… hope

Your vote is counted but here’s the real dope:

“We apologize for the inconvenience and concern this has caused, voters should be assured their vote will be counted.” ~ L.A. County Registrar, Dean C. Logan

This oversight was in areas where

Counts are broadly Hispanic… do you care?

Does this pattern cause you to bat an eye?

My eyes are batting, and I’ll tell you why:

Russia elected Trump by just these means,

Hacked registrations and voting machines.

Excuses for problems fit a pattern.

Wake up people this is cause for concern.

Quiz: Are You A Racist?… a limerick

I’ve devised this simple test to see

If you’re a racist… and yes, it’s free

Look at these photos

Are you discomposed

By Roseanne or men on bended knee?

~

Screams the Anthem, grabs crotch, spits the ground

They protest injustice without sound

No need for a pen

If you answered: men

Then: Yes. Ignorance can be profound
