Suffrage the Children

To change the minimum voting age.
I thought they were saying sixty at first.
A little bit high, but perhaps not the worst.

It’s really sixteen that is being proposed,
But six makes more sense, so my case is now closed.

Should be open to every six year old resident.
Once you’re smart enough to read
Aren’t you ready to vote and lead?
