A Manifesto I made as I ran for Grade 11 Representative A.Y. 2014-2015
Projects, Schoolwork, they’re all I don’t share
My health, the risks, so what? I don’t care
A challenge, they are, for me, I don’t mind
But this is all different. I’ll explain, if it’s fine
I’ve been a workaholic my whole entire life.
Boredom usually kills me more than a sharp knife
When the stress came crashing down on me, I had time for my friends.
I solved each of their problems, was there for them, made it end.
An adventure, I’ll surely have, representing this student body
A promise, we’ll make, and I speak for this party
Faithful Leaders Aiming for a Productive Progressive Youth; FLAPPY
We want, not only for you to be obedient, but also for you to be happy.
I stand in front of you now
Mighty, bold and proud!
Not as a student or a student leader
But as a seventeen-year-old; young, bright and meager
Proving to the world that it’s wrong, for
The youth of today can do so much more
Show off your talent! Alas, time is running up
You only live High School once, don’t waste it all up
And although I do not have a lot, I do have enough
Stick with me and this party, we’ll give this all we’ve got
But we need you to vote, give your everything too
Don’t give up on our adventure, we’ll never give up on you!
