Rookie (August 22 / Alaska)

Rebel - Poem by Shannon Greenwald

Remember the righteous without revolution, reveal risky rogues.
Rosy to rove, regular to reward, rejoice in rescue,
For they recede from reconciliation and recite reckless rasping.
Recover your right, resist ruin, and recoil from their rule.
They may redeem once they rebuke
The ravage rancid remark they respect,
Else they rally at random and ramble with rage,
Rabid they raid until they raise a rapid rapture of rampant rave.
Reigning remains, realism a relic,
Until a rebel rebounds to reduce their realm to a reforming reason
Readily ranged, rare and raw over the ravine.
Its reach ratified, rationed, repaired.
Recent realization renewed, reminds to repay the receptive rebel.
