[POEM] Global Best Practice By Uzezi Ologe

Come! Come and vote

Democracy is the new way

Be not deformed but take note

Representation has come to stay

 

Come! Come out and play

Your civic role. For to pray

Has its place but you must today

Suffer the ballot to have your way

 

Come! Come out and press

Your fingers against this crest

Heed not the lure of the rest

They offer naught but stress

And stay till every vote cast

Is counted to the very last

 

Come! Come out and awe

At him in the starched brocade

The prize your vote dearly bought

Yes, he has come before

 

But he is the rare leopard

That has washed off its spots

He is the born again democrat

The reformed redeemer
