One day a curious man came to town;
He stopped at the bar, and he bought us a round.
We talked all about the upcoming election–
How we needed a man with a brand new direction.
He said, “Yes, I know, we’re all in the same boat,
But it seems just a waste of my time to go vote.”
We all were appalled, and I asked the man, “Why?”
“Well my vote doesn’t count, sir, unless there’s a tie,
And the chances of such are exceedingly small,
So you see my one vote doesn’t count after all.”
I jumped to my feet and said, “That may be true,
But tell us, then, what if we all thought like you?”
The curious man took a drink, cleared his throat,
And shrugging his shoulders, he said, “Then I’d vote!”
