John Ashbery, "Infomercial 2"

The old mule delivers the goods.
Nugatory diddlings are on the decline.
Stateliness has its day.

There are indeed many encouraging signs
in the weather and in handshakes.
An excerpt from a John Ashbery Election Day poem: "Infomercial 2" (New York Times).

I enjoyed all five of those poems, especially Mehigan's and McClatchy's ~ thank you for linking to them. The poem I've had in my head all day is Frost's "Choose Something Like a Star."
