The Chatham Horror
A Poe'm

Once upon a morning D.R. Eerie,
while we pondered confused and leery,
over many quaint and curious lines of accountancy.
Despite the sense of the open meeting,
facts of course "they are so fleeting,
no one will catch that we are cheating."
Quoth the raven "D. R. E."

"We don't care if our effort 's lax,
or, much at all, for the facts,
we don't care if it means more tax.
We're your Chatham B. O. E."
"All you folks who are for scanning
don't understand creative planning."
Quoth, the raven "D. R. E."

Will we say goodbye to our paper ballots,
and say goodbye to our fuller wallets,
and say goodbye our vote selections?"
"Say, what the heck is voting for?"
Forever now under B. O. E. directions,
we'll say goodbye to our fair elections.
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."

Despite the facts we can list off
All we got was being kistoff,
just for wanting our elections free.
Shall we stand for being riptoff?
Hope you'all are really pistoff.
Contact the Chatham B. O. C. !
