Why youth doesn’t have my vote, yet.

  1. here come the politicians…M.P wanna be’s
    spending lots of money trying to impress me
    they say they have the road map to set me free
    so I just look at them as I wait to see
    will they deliver me from poverty…ignorance…disease?
    will they enable me to live a life of ease?
    I have issues that I need to have addressed
    why is it after 9P.M I face the threat of arrest?
    is it a crime being young and out of a job?
    my neighbour’s children are needy bright children
    but will they have to be your relatives
    to qualify for a bursary?
    you politicians…you M.P wannabes
    will you think I’m so cheap?
    so cheap as to be enticed by money?
    will you preach politics of hatred?
    all because someone has stood up to oppose you?
    mister politician…M.P wanna be
    here you are busy enticing me
    what makes you think I’ll vote for you?
    if I vote for you…can you fulfill these promises?
    do you promise not to go off to parliament and forget us?
    do you promise not to raise your salaries…again?
    do you promise to practice issues based politics
    and not dabble in this populist thing
    that seems to be the soup of the day?
    do you promise to push the people’s agenda
    and not force us to push your agenda?
    do you promise to be a servant of the people?
    do you promise to improve the quality of life…
    not just for your family but the entire population?
    you politicians…you M.P. wanna be’s
    these are the questions you need to answer…

  2. good luck in getting anyone let alone the youth to give you a plan of action. you are better off being a guy. i’m being molested by both the “vote youth vote change” and “vote woman vote equality” campaigns. at this rate i’m inclined to voting an 18 year-old girl to be over and done with the noise in my head.

    but i hear you, we should start voting on ISSUES and not just personalities, age and gender. but i believe we are a while away from all of that. maybe we re- start this topic in 2012??
