Rookie (July 9th,19XX / Santa Barbara)

Timed


Tick, Tock-
Time is ticking,
Stop.
Let the words of wasted hours
Melt the ignorance of abused power
as you start again.
Tick, Tock-
Time is ticking,
Stop.
Save the names of fallen men,
Your
Lips
Cry out our anguished grimaces
as we watch him cower
with a feeling
of
try to continue, to continue
to continue, to continue,
to continue and continue
to continue to
Stop.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
