  • Haiku: Ode to Tom Steyer

    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
    but because of the people who don't do anything. - Albert Einstein

    Man of conviction
    With courage to root out a
    Wayward President

    If you have not already done so, please
    join Tanner, and go on line and sign the
    “Need to Impeach” Petition. The time
    to save the Republic is now.

    RZ Poets, "If poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world", it is high time to show our patriotism and take back the country and restore sanity to the USA.

      I agree with the statement, but it's incomplete. Poets who seek to be legislators stop being poets.

        Where does that leave
        Shelley's tirade in
        "Mask of Anarchy"

        "I met Murder on the way -
        He had a mask like Castlereagh -
        Very smooth he looked, yet grim;
        Seven blood-hounds followed him:"

      Published after his lifetime. "Unacknowledged" is important.

        How soon after he wrote it, did he drown?

      That's a great question. I never thought to check. I remember reading that he did want to publish it.. I'm overly romantic about the subject. I see the business of publishing, recognizing and awarding, at real odds with the creative process. I know there are fine first rates poets who can do both. I'm jealous of such intellects.
