The referendum will offer two choices, neither one of them “no.”
                                                          —The New York Times

The ballot was designed to show
That they should change the status quo.
It listed two ways they might go,
But didn’t have a box for “no.”

The vote turned Putin all aglow:
Plain folks had dealt Ukraine a blow—
In democratic vote, although
They didn’t have a box for “no.”
