Hi Ingrid,

Interestingly -to myself at least- I considered:

Poor? Vote for someone who is filthy rich.

No money for pills? Shoot yourself or the one you voted for.

But I skipped them. Suggestion of shooting yourself is illogical. Pills are cheaper than guns. The suggestion of shooting anyone else — even in a satirical context- is illogical too. At least in the tiny little Kingdom of the Oranges. Shooting in the Huge Tyranny of the Dandelioncoloureds seems more accepted.

I didn’t like the bitterness and the hyperbolic trend in all this.

I prefer to swap your idea of

Past salad days? Compost yourself!

with

Past salad days? Come, post, yourself!
