Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer - PoetryChallenge2011

Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer - PoetryChallenge2011

For today's prompt, write a ready to celebrate poem. You could chronicle the actual celebration or even write about the anticipation of one. As many of you know, I am in Austin, Texas this weekend celebrating poetry myself, but I'm also checking in regularly here to enjoy the celebration on Poetic Asides.

A bit hard to celebrate amidst a possible government shutdown, but I'll give it my best shot. A poem to celebrate the REMOVAL of those in power right now - all of them!

Democracy

The hopes of celebration
to remove from devastation
a political aggravation
a day of jubilation
where we hope to find salvation
in a new expectation
of pragmatic inhalations
to be assumed with no "delaytions"
A tirade of palpitations
political assassinations
public annihilations
teeming degradation
waiting for the day when
our vote will change the nation.
