Musings on the election

Frustration with yesterday’s Canadian Federal election and the lack substantive debate on any substantive issue led me to generate the following piece.

None of the Above

I entered the polling station. An unexpected ballot entry below the list of candidates caught my attention: None of the Above.

I marked my ‘x’ in the adjacent box and skipped away happier than I’d ever been after voting.

Then I woke. “Damn! A dream. If only it were real.”

*****

It’s fifty words long, so I may send it to 50-Word Stories, but they’ll probably consider it too parochial (or maybe it’s just not up to their standards).

Don’t have a category for random musings like this – might have to generate one.
