Awake

They got out of bed,
The kitchen, and
Wherever else the men kept them
After the first great war.

A gathering in Cleveland
Announced the arrival of women
To the political arena
With great ballyhoo, purpose, and promise.

Newly enfranchised,
Women promised to drive
Out the leaders of
Man’s political machine.

Too bad all these years later
We see that one woman
Has become the political machine
More because of her ambition than anything righteous.
