A Movement - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki

he is not your average politician
I'll grant you that

more a leader of a movement
that offers phantom hope

to a world of concrete reality
death and taxes

eloquent to a fault
some say

    Both he and his brother got themselves shot. As the Stones's song goes, 'Ya know it was you and me'...
