"Not another one. There's too much politics going on"

Elections and referendum seem to be the order of the day.
No one could say politics is dull or boring at the moment.
That all sides are the same and votes don't matter.
Is there to many chances to have your say?
Appears some think so.

Yet to have our say was a fight hard won.
It was not handed to us on a plate.
Our long gone mothers, sisters, aunts and all.
Marched for us to have a voice and vote.
Some died for us to have a voice and vote.

You have the privilege in our free country.
If you wish to keep your voice silent that is also your right.
No one forces you to take an interest in politics,
 or what is happening in the world around you.
No one will force you to the polling booth.

Others marched for that right on your behalf,
 but it's your choice to use or refuse it.
In other places still that march for a voice goes on.
In 2017 many still don't have that right, it is not yet universal.
"Too much politics"? Many elsewhere would like the choice you deride.
