JOSEPH, MARY, A DONKEY AND DEMOCRATS

A donkey carried Mary and her unborn child to Bethlehem 
Joseph sturdily led the way on foot it has been penned 
The donkey proved a faithful friend to Joseph and Mary
It got them to where they had to be on time and safely
The Democratic Party’s donkey logo was picked to demonstrate
How staunch democratic members normally operate
Taking deliberate moves on behalf of its constituency
Sacrificing speed for cautious concern and dependability
Donkeys are known to be stubborn and may refuse to budge
Like indecisive Democrats inclined to delay and misjudge
I applaud the Democratic Party’s’ efforts to serve so diligently
Its donkey logo fits their political and historical identity
After all, if the donkey was good enough for Joseph and Mary
How can I disagree, a Democratic sinner who prays infrequently?

    Thanks to all my fellow poets who commented on Joseph, Mary and the Donkey! Your comments keep me going. I feel awed by all the great company I'm keeping on Poetry Soup and still not sure I belong here with all of you! I'll just keep plugging away and hope for the best for at 77 I'm getting a little nervous about my longevity! Thanks for your kind words. Carol Zic
