Voted

I voted because I’m better than you.
I voted because I believe in something.
I voted because
it is my duty as a citizen of this land
to speak my mind
and make my voice heard
for all who could be bothered to listen
and many who can’t.

I voted
because my democratic ideals are first rate.
I voted because my needs were not seriously
taken into account
during the last election cycle.
I voted because it is my right.
It is my privilege.
It is my responsibility.
I voted because it’s what I saw on my schedule for Tuesday afternoon after waking up.

I voted because
I am presently underemployed
and had little else to do
to make the hours pass.

I voted.
Just because.
I’m a voter.
What are you?
