For Lisa Savage, Candidate
I was alive
when the first bomb went off
you probably were not
being 78 as I am
does not allow enough energy
to run for Senate (U. S.)
but you energized by years of teaching
real work the others haven’t done
slim and attractive looking
years of picketing BIW.
were you there at the launching
of the Irwin S. Rommel?
Bath down so low
that it would take any work
do you remember
the young guy
who leapt out of the crowd
and yelled “Rommel was a Nazi!”
just as Rommel’s wife swung the bottle
We need to abandon the military
you have been trying
life is in your heart
six billion people
are depending on you
as an honest voice for peace
have ridiculous amounts of money
much from weaponeers
how do they live with themselves
steaks and rifles
so few standing tall against them—you!
