Voting produces damaging trauma.
New statistics have been compiled by shrinks;
stats reveal the trauma of shame endured
by voters who voted for the loser.
Deep shame lingers for a long period—
for some it is a stigma that leads to
opioid-meth addiction, sniffing bleach,
loss of esteem that leads to loss of jobs.
Self-mutilation with knives has occurred.
The Stop the Vote movement has been gaining.
Chanting “Stop the Vote” at public buildings
has resulted in miraculous cures
for those afflicted with deep loser shame.
Yes, politics is a traumatic game!
