Inside Political Discord

A Poem by Sharon Miller Bolander

1. barrel 2. roll 3. cross 4. cloaked 5. foggy 6. stars 7. vents 8. dam 9. freedom 10. friends the classic 10/40: use all 10 words in a poem no more and no less than 40 words.


Stars of hope drown inside hatred’s murky dam

In one crazy roll of voting’s dice.

Friends vanish cloaked by foggy shadows.

Mind’s vents become clogged with paranoia,

Cross the line to anarchy,

And let truth’s freedom flounder inside a barrel.
