Whatever Happened to the Secret Ballot? by Oonah V Joslin

You have your ballot card with you I see.
Maybe you killed someone to get that though.
Do you have proof of your identity?
A valid drivers licence? Expired… I see.
Passport? You never go on holiday?
Can’t afford to. Ah. Pity.
Birth certificate? You should apply for a copy.
Are you in full employment? Retired…
Did you leave of your own will or were you fired?
Made redundant? Can’t have been tip top.
Post code…the scruffy houses by the railway stop.
You don’t look like you’d vote the way we’d like.
Don’t think I’ll let you vote… Now, on yer bike!
