An ode to one fine day

"Election Day's coming!"

They snarled with a shout

"No time for a walk

No, no time to go out!


"No time for the sunshine!

No time for the breeze!

No time for the flutter

Of bright autumn trees!"


They punched at their keyboards

And sharpened their snark

To see who could make

The most cutting remark.


Meanwhile, on Thursday ...


The parents with strollers

Commuters on bikes

The kids on their scooters
