Musings from Election Primaries


I know that it’s not my place to tell
But listening to you is a little piece of hell
You talk on and on about things I don’t care about
Everything you say I can’t help but doubt
I hope all of this is over soon.
You’re starting to sound like a goon

Do you believe the words you say?
It seems like your opinions are changing every day.
I’m confused about it all
And I’m afraid on your own pride you will fall
I guess you’ll have one more chance
To win your victory dance.

Inspired by the election primaries, no particular candidate

I’m not going to get political with you tonight. This might be the only time I mention it, and it might not. We know what the candidates we believe in think about the issues we care about. If we don’t, it often leads to feelings like I expressed in my poem. Be very clear about who the candidates are and what they are saying about the matters that matter most to you. Don’t let them impress you with useless words.

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
