The day of reckoning arrives tomorrow in my lovely country in the form of Elections. Off to polls my countrymen and I will go to cast off ballots and be marked with indelible ink (nothing gets this stuff off, it lingers for days and days!). My guess is that everyone will be wondering the same thing: That come Monday morning, will there be more of the same or something different (good different that is)?
We will wait with bated breath to hear what results. In the meantime however, I have composed a little ditty to mark this very important day *clearing my throat*;
It’s off to vote we go,
With determination and grit and a ballot slip,
Hi-ho, Hi-ho, Hi-ho.”
Mmmh, not my best work, but it will do :-)
Seriously though, all I ask is that everything goes peacefully; no matter the outcome and that Kenya-esque riots and the like do not ensue, for everyone’s sakes.
God Bless Zimbabwe and all her people!
On a random side note: I would like to give all unborn children thinking of making their grand entrance’s into the world, more specifically this country, come this Saturday a general heads up!
Given previous trends during prior voting days, it’s a well-known fact that Zimbabwean babies born on the day of voting have a high (read: VERY high) likelihood of being unwillingly dubbed with the following names by their loving, yet highly excitable parents:
8) Obama (there’s always a wildcard in there somewhere)
Don’t say you weren’t duly warned :-)
Have a fantastic and stress-free weekend everyone!V x
