Welcome To The Party
by Einstein Noodle and Mattavelli

"Avenues from far and wide
 swept minds of every station; 
with tongue and pen put past aside 
birthing our New Nation.
A Bride she is blushing and flushed
her dowry, countless lives;
her suitors' sabers came and rushed
to keep and own this prize.

Those men who framed this land
were thoughtful in their task;
so now, what monarchs might demand,
we people need but ask.
And all those many voices,
their mingled story spun,
give rise to many choices 
as many stand as one.

Her bones and teeth with jagged edge
she falters through the years.
To speak, defend, under the Pledge
nearing beyond worste fears.
the ebb and flow of malice, a sylph,
relentlessly rending to tears ....
corrupt the youth, drag down in filth
hold leaders up to scornful jeers

It seems we're so divided
by tugs from right and left,
that all that gets decided
leaves half of us bereft.
And so the nation festers,
the loudest voices, lies,
that draw hearts to those jesters
who dance as justice dies.

You have perfectly reflected the current political climate in not just America, but it seems to be a worldwide phenomena. It seems no one is concerned with even so much as appearances anymore. Leaders are cut throat, indeed. Sad reality and it seems we are slipping back into monarchy mentality as all fight for the prize, at the cost of how many? Excellent poem, hating the truth of this one. Cheers!

" The tugs of right and left " in USA makes us wonder do any one care about the country they are elected to take care? in the coalition governments the glue that holds the government together is corruption!

Good, hard working immigrants had build this great country and with many lives lost to keep the ideals alive from slipping into the abyss of the past. The politicians, right or left, can hijack all of that and cause many things. The people will and should protect the precepts of the constitution.
An excellent collaboration and message.

Wow! You are both welcome...
A very fine statement of facts set in extraordinary meter and flowing language! The way in which you've BOTH written is gentle yet logical and above everything, seems to me, diplomatically put. Perhaps you could give lessons to those that most definitely need some.

Our world seems to be turning in on itself, weatherwise and politically... the inevitable tides of change and charge... false claims with too little economy!

A very fine collaboration.

This is a mind-blowing political commentary from two of my very favorite writers on this website! That's what I call a morning miracle! What I most love is the way you do not "take sides" but illuminate the harm in taking sides as staunchly as it's being done, more & more, these days. Nicely avoiding clichés that choke the airwaves & just pleading for compromise & mutual understanding, that's nowhere to be found sometimes (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Paraphrasing Paul Ryan - the republicans are an opposition party. They aren't organized to govern.
