Isn't this a better way of coding this?

I feel like this is a much simpler and more DRY way of writing this. Is this wrong? There is only one callback function, and I reuse the 404 error handling in app.js.

router.post("/:qId/answers/:aId/vote-:direction", (request, response, next) => 
    const direction = request.params.direction;

    if(direction === 'up' || direction === 'down')
            response: `You sent a POST request in /vote-${direction}`,
            questionId: request.params.qId,
            answerId: request.params.aId,
            vote: direction
