None of The Above

Ink prevents twice of a voting
Hardly the matter for a NOTA
Only spoils pretty fluorescent
Nail polish below, finger show
By females better at a choice
When a Hobson rules politics,
The horse closest to the door
Or none at all, the final NOTA
To press the machine in relief
Or the horse would bolt again
Into dark nights of old times.

(India’s General Elections currently under way have for the first time incorporated a new NOTA (none of the above) option in the voting machines for the electors puzzled by paucity of good candidates)
