Election Day (and the rodents)

The city of Kroy and the whole country will elect its new king. People are motivated. There are the ones who are for the white one, others are for the black one. After everything which is written and said, it feels like : you can chose between squirrels and rats, but both belong to the family of rodents. My Spanish friend says there are two things. He always sees two things. On the one hand, one thing; the other thing on the other hand – but both belong to the same body, he says.
