democracy

the day after . . .
experts explain the results
they failed to predict

I just posted this as a comment at Marcel's blog. A lot of elections going on here and there.

It's very difficult in Belgium, because two linguistic groups (French, Nederlands) have opposite points of vieuw.

I believe it's hard to have the same point of view in two languages, Marcel.

Thanks, Karol and Monika.

As I said, I posted this at Marcel's blog, but it was inspired by the punditry that followed Tuesday's elections here in the States.

High IQ: Thanks for the invitation. I'll get to work on it. Am I correct that there is a one-poem-per-poet limit, or may one submit multiple entries (assuming one can come up with them)?
