I was getting very tired of politics so thought I would spend some time with a few of my favorite poets. Television, Twitter, Facebook are all in ugly mode at present so beautiful, sensitive, lovely poetry should be safe. Right? Oops. Great poetry says uncomfortable things. It rattles cages. It makes you think about issues and sometimes it makes changes in the world.
Here is your very uncomfortable dose of politics for the day to be read or just listened to from the pen of one of America’s greatest writers who had a very bad habit of making people think.
