Monumental Poem - Poem by William B. Watterson

The Washington monument
stands erect
on a grassy mound,
flagpoles sprouting
around the base,
a prodigious phallic symbol
pointing skyward—
fitting memorial
to a man
who was
father of his country.

    Amusing, Bill. We do, sometimes forget the actual meaning of 'progenitors'. This poem corrects that tendency very nicely. Thank you for it. (Report) Reply
