Before you vote

The world at first was flat
The earth was all alone
Only birds would ever fly
…said those thought to have known

The ruler of the sea, ’twas told
caused earthquakes from his throne
Zeus created thunderous rain
…said those thought to have known

Dewey defeated Truman
Castro would be overthrown
Ford produced the Edsel
… from those thought to have known

So before you cast your vote
from where has your wisdom grown?
Find your own way, lest you must say
“… from those thought to have known”
