Poem of the Month: Because this system should serve more than those who clutch dead ideals and documents drenched in dust; it should serve us" I'm highlighting some older poems that are personal favorites of mine; it's a way to shout out some good work, and also to analyze some tools and tactics that poets use that might be useful to aspiring writers.
Find the full list here. Second, this is a poem about the importance of voting. I write something about voting pretty much every year, and have a post coming with more thoughts and resources related to that.
For now, though, I think this poem is a great reminder for those of us especially those of us who CAN vote who aren't already plugged in to plug the hell in.
