NOTA is no choice


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 is closest to a door
Or none at all, the final NOTA
To press the machine is relief.
And a horse might bolt again
Into dark nights of old times.

India’s General Elections 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.
