Democracy without bitterness

What a joy
That we remain friends
After the election!
That is democracy
Without bitterness.

You won and I lost;
But our friendship continues;
That is democracy
Without bitterness.

I have congratulated you;
And you have consoled me;
Life continues;
That is democracy
Without bitterness.

True that we said things
During the campaign;
But that is now of the past;
It was the game of politics;
Those things are behind
And we are moving on;
That is democracy
Without bitterness.

No bitterness in our hearts;
No provocation of anyone;
Only celebration on both sides;
Since Democracy has won;
That is democracy
Without bitterness.

Today is your turn,
Tomorrow may be my turn;
And life will continue;
That is democracy
Without bitterness.
