I spent the day dressed as Ben Franklin at the CNN Center. I did rattle security for they were not expecting a pirate or weathered wrinkled $100 bill in costume. I told them I came to eat and watch people from all over the world as a poet. I take it they do not see too many living Liberals, most of the Liberals they see are in their wallets. They do a good job there.

I did see Democracy at work there as people lined up at Chick Fil A. Why even twenty GBI people showed up. It was great to see a Christian diversity and their banners. This is what America is mostly about.

I wish we could have a demonstration like this for Congress to act.

I ate at Wendy's and Arby's because as a Christian, I wanted to see Chick Fil A Anti Discrimination policy against bias before I had another Chick Fil A. It is that I remember the restaurants of the 1960's.

But then that was a side show, I loved the diversity of CNN center and that is what this poem is about. I wish more corporations had CNN's great diversity of understanding, but I must admit I did not see any Liberal weathered living founding fathers employees.

I did get a lot of requests for photo's of this Franklin Doppelganger, and that was fun. I did not charge for them, and I loved those that were sneaking shots while pretending to be on the phone.

I wish the world was a CNN Center of mutual respect.

CNN Center Diversity


CNN Center atrium center of International news

Visitors from around the world taking tours.

Every color of worldwide diverse clothing

With flip flops to loafers to various sneakers.


Balconies flags hang from around the globe,

While people converse in different languages.

A CNN giant screen showing varied stories

As people circulate to share cultural diversity.


Every day you have a melting pot mixing here,

Never having problems in showing mutual respect.

Could CNN cohesion spread this sense of tranquility

That communicates peace in universal understanding?
