April 2016 Poem A Day #2 - Consequences


She said
"I'm going to march and get arrested." 
I said
"Oh Really,"
 "And what will that prove?" 
She said
"Corporations have too much power,
  "we'll show them people count." 
I said
"Did you vote in the midterm elections?" 
"No" she said.
"It's a free country I don't have too." 
I smiled sadly, donated her bail
to the League of Women Voters.
