Time to choose

Election time is here again.
Though many people will not vote.
A fact thatís easy to explain.
The floating voters choose to float.
The voting system is unfair.
It tends to favour two parties.
Itís hard to choose between this pair.
They offer no new policies.
Perhaps itís time to break the mould.
Reform the system root and crop.
In with new out with old
Passing the parcel has to stop.
Abstaining doesnít make much sense.
Your vote might make the difference.
