Twilight Voters Edge

lines stretched across damp parking lots and down city blocks
rain gave way to blue voters converged on polling places
snapped a photo at first light an immortalize awakening

after a long and bitter struggle holding a decisive edge
economic crisis Iraq Afghanistan wars overhaul health care
if tighten control Congress may easier new administration deal

in twilight of presidency at positive perception low
whether America will become more inward-looking and
no question anything but a vote to change focus people’s minds

-- Clark Allison

Farewell Bush: what the world expects from his successor
Obama and McCain await voters' decision
Southern California turns out to vote
