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!

A very nice collaboration we have here Mr E. I have yet to meet mattavelli. You have a divided nation, but if you look at what is happening across the pond we also have the same. We are very divided at the moment, more so than for a long time. Yes, the tug of war between right and left and the lack of respect shown between politicians is pretty dismal. The language used is ferocious at times, diplomacy appears to be a word no one understands any more. What a state of affairs. Solution? Now I'd be a wealthy woman if I could work that one out. Good day to you.

An excellently crafted poem, EN,and oh, so very true!
A song parody, sung to the tune of AQUARIUS:

"When a loon is in the big white house
And stupider than rocks on Mars;
His team will decimate the planet
Unless they end up behind bars!
This is the dawning of the age that will bury us,
The age that will bury us--
Will bury us! Will bury us!
No harmony or understanding;
Sympathy and trust are drowning.
Under falsehoods and derisions
Emboldened by extreme divisions
Sadistic distal ruination
And the blind's new liberation--
Will bury us! Will bury us!"
(The parody project!)

compelling or restraining.. left or right.. tis mind blowing this so called politics game.. I would not mind so much if one or two believed what they themselves were saying.. sadly though, tis oft not the case methinks.. tis about power and greed and gaining both no matter what the cost.. Unfortunately, it is a universal problem.. every now and then tho, a decent one pops up.. thankfully.. must say, it does sadden me to see how divided your great nation is at present.. now that must be a worry... A super seamless collaboration and with a refreshing point running all the way through... N

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.
