The Ailurophiles

The Ailurophiles

A Poem by justice

It's in the air,



The whole world
watches in anticipation
as this young team
topples the Autocrats
in thrilling fashion.

However, they are far from finished.

This is just
the first
of many opponents
they will face
in this tournament.

But tonight,
they are celebrating
in Cairo.

A very good poem. I like the feel of hope and celebration. I like the word "ailurophile". Thank you for the positive poem.

pretty good, the whole egypt thing was pretty close to home for me ( egypt is the only other decently developed nation in africa) i like the way the lines are set.

This is just
the first
of many opponents
they will face
in this tournament."

too true, overthrowing a government is easy... Replacing it effectively and rebuilding, that is hard

The sports metaphor made me laugh. The title made me groan. I usually don't like poems about current political events, but this one was pretty painless.
