Paper Boat

My little blue vote
is a leaky, paper boat
on a red state sea.

For the September Challenge at Haiku Heights and Open Link Monday at Real Toads.

The political drama in your country is so entertaining ~ Nice one MZ ~

PattiKen said...

Scary, isn't it? We can only hope the passengers and crew on your blue boat get themselves to the polls. Very clever write, MZ.

Very nice, Mom Z. I'm from a RED STATE also and my vote won't count. Either way, it won't. But I will vote with my paper boat.

BTW, ours are electronic here.

Love the idea of the red sea as blood, and the blue paper sure gets drowned in it at times. But it is possible that the reds will shoot themselves in the foot by and by.

Yeah, but rebel that you are, it'll set sail if only just to sink.
Maybe if we blow on it together it can waggle on to a blue ocean

I got some awesome tools and a roll of canvas...there may be enough of us to fashion a blue party boat that way....it doesn't matter, we will just enjoy each others company and have wine. Way to paint it blue.
