Have you voted yet…?

June 30, 2009

We’re semi-finalists in the Best Arts Project category of the National Lottery Awards. If you haven’t voted yet, maybe Lorraine’s poem will persuade you…

By leaves we live, with votes we grow

 An election is occurring; it’s a chance for poetry
Please vote well, vote firm, vote early – help us win the lottery!

Votes are petrol for our engine and more wind behind our sail
They’ll buy books for all of Scotland, help our library upscale.

We won’t spend it on a duck house, on a moat, or sky tv-
Spread the word and urge your friends to help us win the lottery!

Lorraine is a regular SPL-er. She comes to reading groups and events and can often be found writing poems here at Our Sweet Old Etc. She’s fab.

If you haven’t voted (please vote!) you can do so by dialling 0844 686 7233 or by visiting the National Lottery Awards website and clicking the blue button. The deadline is 10 July.
