Here I Sit Broken Hearted

Here I sit broken hearted.
Tried to vote, but was only thwarted.

"You're in the wrong place." they said to me.
"The computer says so. Look, here see."

"I always vote here!" I cried.
They looked at me as if I'd lied.

"Computers don't lie. That's the law."
"So if you're not there, there can be no flaw."

"Perhaps you're a felon, a terrorist or both."
"Perhaps you're just lost, or prone to Democratic sloth."

"Whatever the trouble, it's not our fault."
"Try again next time. While you wait - read up on John Galt."
