One wonders as the time draws near
To make our voices heard
The difference our one vote makes
Or is it all absurd?
There will be many millions out
To vote for those of choice.
What difference to this chorus makes
One solitary voice?
We vote because we have the right.
We vote because we’re free.
We vote because men died to let
Us choose our destiny.
A single straw’s fragility
Has strength that can’t be seen
But many straws can form a broom
To sweep our country clean.
When illness makes our country weak
We have the antidote.
Our future lies within our hands
When we get out and vote.
