Mollie

Mollie Politicized In an attempt to gain Advantage by high-jacking grief * A glaring betrayal of compassion Cheap predation on emotions Let justice take its course And rest in peace Mollie - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - [* a quote from Chris Cuomo] Contest: Rictameter Me Sponsor: White Wolf © 26th August 2018

A sad but wonderfully written Rictameter Paul! This form reminds me of the Etheree a bit. I have recently written my first one. Yours is a great example of the form! : )

You've expressed, so very elegantly, the feelings of myself and many like-minded people. Your brilliant poem illuminates the heartless political nature of some on this heartbreaking loss. Such a tragedy! Mollie's dad stood up for the right for his daughter to rest in peace and for her family to be able to mourn with dignity and privacy. Bravo to her family and also to you, Paul for shining your beautiful poetic light on this 'betrayal of compassion'. Warmest wishes and hugs always.. ~Susan

Thank you, Susan. I am glad that in this case we are both on the same wavelength! As I remarked before, the family need closure not heartless exposure. ~ Warm regards & Hugs // paul

Sad to hear about this tragedy. I'm glad you've written about it, Paul. It's a sad world we live in. People all just want to forward their own agenda. Sad. Hugs

If you look up Mollie Tibbett you'll find enough information to give you a clear insight into her disappearance, death and political association. Thank you for stopping by, Andrea. Regards // paul

A tremendous loss for Humanity! A blossoming youth, a promising soul, a bearer of pure love, an open heart ready to serve and give.. May she rest in peace.. What aches more is that her "murder" is "politicized"! A brilliant write Paul! Thank you so much for sharing.. and for giving me the honour and pleasure to know a new form, to me, of poetry.. grateful to you. Be blessed always.

Indeed, life taken at a tender age is a heartfelt loss, Besma. Politicizing it shows great lack of human understanding. Thank you for your insightful feedback, my friend. Regards & blessing // paul
