Election Day

The country sits still now.
Politicians watch the news screens and scan political websites.
The polls are closed and the votes are being counted.
Mothers round up their children for bed --
Schools pick back up in session tomorrow.
Janitors will fold up card tables and put them away.
Sweep gym floors.
Television broadcasts real-time updates.
The country waits...
