Vigil at Newtown, CT — President Obama’s Remarks
Posted with @dVersePoets & @NewWorldCreativeUnion
For this Tuesday’s open Pub #OpenLinkNight
I pick up
and easily throw
upon my shoulders
a long white jacket of
built from bendable wires
Just enough to slip on
over my coat ~
I imagine my plight
put on this ~ metal jacket
I was left with
no way out
but now I find
it only opens one-way
has no key
I am locked here
inside this ~ my gated life
I am suppose to
this mountain climb
by just daily living
and fighting the good fight
In this system
where lies and misinformation
shadow box each other
for the prime spot
in our nation’s news
Oh ~ these wires we place
with unhinged malice
escaping any willing action
Now if only now
hearing the calls of our children
somehow shouldn’t we agree ~
To dare to imagine
a different path
and at the same time
