Getting Votes

Getting Votes

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Little Red was her name

Wolf hunting was her game

Since her Granny had been eaten

She’s pursued each furry cretin


With a wolf trap she’d bought

At a Canadian hunting stop

Her constant quest for wolf hide

Would again not be denied


On a misty morn in May

Camouflaged, about to make her play

On the verge of having her way

Of putting an end to a carnivore’s day


As she set her trap, far from English seas

A smiling Politician came through the trees

It was Justin Trudeau, striding with confident ease

Onto his portable podium, midst birds and bees

Promising wolf traps would hit the breeze


To the sound of wicked wolf’s hooray

He snatched her offending trap away

Convinced all wolves would support him

In his quest for an election win


His concern for Red was remote

Cuz, she was way too young to vote

A nice spoof on politicians......they’ll take any vote they can get, even a wolfs...and poor Red was too young to vote anyway. Always clever you are Mr. Dave...I really enjoyed the poem.

Politicians only care about the votes and winning the election in the long run. Doesn’t matter where you live.

Love the creamy spin with little Red
