Voting Rights Amend-mints

There is now
a new flavor

of Ben & Jerry's ice cream

one which does not reference Bernie Sanders
as this poet predicted

but does use
the surmised suffix of "mint"

to call for "Empower Mint"

and it won't be long
till Donald Trump

tweets that the invention of the flavor
is a "sad" and "politically calculated" move

unlike of course
the introduction
of discriminatory voter ID laws.
