Apologies to William Shakespeare's Henry V and the St. Cripin's Day Speech (if it helps imagine Kenneth Branagh is saying it)
This day is called 2004 Election Day
They that go to vote this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And be roused at the name of Kerry/Edwards.
They that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will on the eve thereof feast with his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is when we threw Bush out:'
Then will they open their wallet and show their cards.
And say 'This I used to vote upon Election day.'
Old folks forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But they'll remember with advantages
What feats they did that day: then shall their names.
Familiar in their mouths as household words
Kerry the king, Edwards and Howard Dean,
Clark, Graham and Gephardt, Sharpton, Mosely-Braun,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.
This story shall the good person teach a child;
And Election Day shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We many, we very very many, we band of voters;
For they today that cast their vote with me
Shall be a voter; be they ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle their condition:
And mouthbreathing freepers now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they did not win,
And hold their citizenship cheap whiles any speaks
That vote with us upon this election day.
