I am British, My wife is American, a published author and works here in a London publishing firm. Her brother is a journalist on the East coast. Her father is a professor in the States. We talk a lot about politics.
I never liked Mr. Bush. After so much hysteria from Canadians and French and anyone who else who is looking for reasons to bash the president, after poems like yours that reflect a gut feeling and isn’t based on a full discussion of all the facts, After so much crusading to demonize him, like your poem, it finally had an effect on me…….
I have changed my mind, and have decided to support the president of my wife’s home.
Thank you for helping me make a decision that I can be proud of.
I am hurt when you are hurt I am dead when you are dead So the only way to make myself better again Is to heal your wounds, then maybe I’ll live again
Cause when you are alive I am alive
I guess this is what happens When you really love someone…
