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
