My May Day Poem

Just some random thoughts about what is good public policy...

And sometimes, to figure out what is good, it is helpful to think about what is not good...

It is not good to make felons of 30% of non-white males before they reach the age of 25.

It is not good to pay women to have babies that they could otherwise not financially support.

It is not good to diss good people just because they don't wanna kiss up to the same people you do.

It is not good to spit on anyone, to piss on the floor and not clean it up, to assume you will never be desperately in need of help.

so now for what IS good...

patience,
tolerance,
temperance,
hopefulness,
brightness,
bold-assness,
come ON y'all, we can
DO THIS.
Dontcha know, dontcha know

dontcha know we're all in this together?
and you're no better than the one standin' next to you
who's no better than you?

Hope so,
happy May Day,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Love,
Nancy
