Two Thousand And One - Poem by Jim Boone
'millennium: 2 - a period of good government,
great happiness, and prosperity'
Over wheel tracks of covered wagons
cut deep into the earth
we have built roads to the futures
of the young and the yet-to-be
Through the wilderness of recorded
we stood united against mindless
and fought for generations of past, present
and future classes in this school
Around pious words without meaning
political words with agendas flaunted
We've rethought original intent
while reinventing the intender
until the unpopular choice was victorious
and set about (opening portals to the future)
while (healing divisions)
as we begin another century and millennium
on the way to
'one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty
and justice for all'
For all Mr. President. Good afternoon!
Sent to fellow Texan George W. Bush on his inauguration
as President of the United States of America. Believing
that ‘for all’ would not compute in his political mindset.
