Chain Mail Men

by Julia Griffin

“100 Million Ballots, But Experts Say ‘Heaven And Earth’ Being Moved For Election Mail”

The clerks are working overtime; the drivers strive all night,
The postmen’s sacks half break their backs; no part of this is light.
They need strong will, strategic skill, and also lots of luck:
For revving Heaven’s easy but this Earth seems truly stuck.
