Bernie

Bernie

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

Don't wait till your life is all done to learn the lessons of a fool Know the rewards of self are none where love of others is the rule

"
 
 America's favorite son Bernie Sanders with family and friends

What is the value of a life

built on shattered dreams from others

And so it's thus, for each of us

who can't feel for our own brothers



These the thoughts of Bernie Sanders

who's cried for half a century

"Lift up your sons, put down your guns

empty your penitentiary”



"Pick up the sad, lonely and poor

help your friends in humility

 Open your soul, make that your goal

put away your hostility”



His struggle from the depths of a heart

so relentless yet so profound

echo's in waves, patriot graves

where mothers tears cover the ground



A grateful nation now reports

the cry that began as a plea

That's shook our core, with something more

all the way to Antiquity





 Bernie Sanders comforts a Muslim student

A wonderful man! Unfortunately, he had no chance, as you can see the mentality of this country is still in the dark ages. If we don't raise the standards of education "the wall" will fall and crush us!
Great writing, provokes emotion and awareness. Keep writing and spreading the word!

Such a shame he stood down, the machine that is politics is such a farce.

Regards your poem: I read it out of context and I couldn't help thinking about Northern Ireland all the way though. I don't think that you had that in mind when you wrote this but I think it fits perfectly - which is interesting (and potentially very telling?).

Thank you you would like this guy he is one of a kind
Took me awhile to get the time once back, again with powerful touching words an amazingly accurate write. Bernie has stood against the tide since he was young, a man living the life of a poet through actions instead of words. Amazingly done Tate.

Thank you Chilson
Coming from the UK, I had only heard a little about Bernie Saunders, so I took some time to read about him in a little more depth.

He is clearly a passionate and compassionate man; but more importantly, at least to me, he looks kind and genuinely caring. The photograph you posted of him comforting a Muslim student gives me hope that all is not yet lost.

Beccy.

Thank you so much Jamie
I admire your always well written, excellently rhymed and easy flowing poetry and this one is no exception. The subject matter is another matter. My personal preference is to avoid politics (and politicians in general) especially in the poetry environment. Poetrywise a great write!

Thank you Pryde oh if only the mindset of the united States would soften
I voted for Bernie in the primaries. He had the heart, Hillary had the connections. The Clinton machine's a force to be reckoned with. Bernie's crew found that out. Great poem Tate
