"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 worst 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.

I did comment on this collaboration of two brilliant poets on Einstein N' s page The political arenas in the rest of the world are vastly different from US, The multiple party systems usually encourage coalition governments and the glue that holds the government in those countries is corruption! Even though you have a relatively transparent government " tugs from right and left" leaves it divided!

I saw this on Gene's page & commented there . . . but I had to stop by your page to comment here, too. I love the way this keeps everything in perspective, something I find hard to do, once I get going on a political bent! *smile* I commend you two for being able to collaborate with differing viewpoints. I find collaborating hard even with similar viewpoints! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

What a wonderful piece of collaboration this poem is!
From beginning to end it flows so smoothly with rhythm, rhyme and meaning. And the imagery and metaphors seem effortless.

WELL DONE!!!
