Summa Cum Hocum

What we want it to be
Reality is not,
For the vote to be free,
Is wasting the ballot
Cast democratically;
In one's own life is not
Managing destiny
An end too far to see?

The window lets light in
For the soul wanting out;
Reluctance to fight in
A battle blasting doubt
Is a risk... one might win
The headache's crushing bout,
Migraines oft delight in.

What is good for the goose
Looks great on the ganders,
Famed Mother on the loose,
To parity panders,
Expecting this sad ruse,
Estrogenic danders,
Would critically reduce,
When the drake meanders.
