Calling all Kids by Kenn Nesbitt

Calling all children! Please lend me your ears.
We vote for a President every four years.
We have an election that’s coming up soon,
and we need your help, so turn off that cartoon
and give me a moment or two of your time
by reading the rest of this short, simple rhyme.

The vote is the way that the people decide,
which person will lead us, and act as our guide.
You can’t cast your vote till you’re grown-up, it’s true,
but, still, there is something that all kids can do.
Remember this poem, these words that I wrote,
and go ask your parents and teachers to vote.
