Signs of the Times


        Is there a place along any highway where there are no election signs?  There are very few yards where there are no signs.  They say “vote for Mr. X!”  Or “Elect Ms. Y!”  Every day, it seems that there are more signs.  As we drove along the highway we saw a funny sight!    There were dozens of election signs in one place.  In the middle of the group was a different one.  It said “Yard Sale”.


        I’ve been looking for a place to hide.  No TV program is complete without political ads every ten minutes.  They say that the truth will come out.  But that never seems to happen until after Election Day.


        My telephone rings constantly.  Most of the calls these days are about the election.  They want to tell me who to vote for.  Or they want to know who I plan to vote for. 


        Are the signs telling the truth?  We hear that candidates have spent so much money.  Elections are expensive!  We used to say, “A chicken in every pot”.  It seems that elections run on money.  Maybe that’s what we need to make the economy recover.  We just need more elections.  Then everybody can have a job and we’ll all be rich!  It’s a yard sale, after all!


Word List: election,  political,  candidates,  expensive
