Poem on the eve of an election

I was looking for a love poem today, but found this instead.

This is the universe
where fortune
finds itself
in love
with misfortune.

This is the territory
of slackers,
where nothing changes
but change.

This is a place
in space
where everyone says
to the other
"you blew it,"
and nothing,
if ever,
gets done.

This is the Land of Missed Opportunity
by Steve Cannon
