A little election year musing.


 

A Revolutionary Act*
 
 
Today I wrote a poem,
Rebelled, and fixed the world.
Carefully chosen words
Gave health care to everyone.
Iraq turned peaceful.
Israelis hugged Hamas.
Muslim extremists joined
Habitat for Humanity.
All mortgages were forgiven.
Wall Street Hot Shots
Found means to spread wealth.
A nice day to begin with
Turned especially beautiful:
Sun sparkles on the water
Rose as golden promise.
I stood and stretched
And poured a cup of coffee.
Not bad at all
For a few minutes work.**

 

 
 
*”The deepest reading of a good poem…(is) a revolutionary act.”, from Danny Heitman, “Poetry is essential to Politics, and to Us”, The Christian Science Monitor, April 11, 2008
** And now that you've read this far, welcome to the revolution!
