Now we are six






Now we are six

Lower the voting age to six
The academic said;
It will recorrect imbalances at the other end
Where you can vote at sixty, seventy, eighty-
There is no cut off point.
Children have sensibilities-
They wouldn't have voted for Brexit or Trump
Give six year olds the vote,
Why not.
