One of my bosses, a man whom I admire very much, emailed this to the faculty and staff of my department.

We Vote Every Day -- a poem by James Tracy

i’m always
of parties
republican ones
democratic ones
green ones
red ones
old ones
first ones
third ones
infantile disorder
a simple love
of the people
that burns like
a ballot
in a molotov cocktail

i have often
a clothespin
on my nose
and punched the chad
pulled the lever
but really i believe
that every cook
can govern.
