Goose Feather (Prose Poem)

In 2185 the citizens of earth voted in support of a ban on voting by a margin of almost 6 billion votes.  It was pointless, since everyone just voted for the same person anyway, and shopping malls closed on voting days so you couldn’t find much to eat.  Democracy rolled off the planetary tongue like a piece of fuzz or a goose feather.
