Elections

I vote for myself,

we all vote for ourselves.

What for?

I vote for a higher goal,

we vote to achieve a stronger democracy.

I vote to advance the ideals of modern society,

we vote to improve the quality of life.

What for?

I vote to protect minorities,

we vote to protect humanism,

but in the end I vote for who promises more bread.

That is all we vote for.
