#htspoetweet So many people are not working but have jobs. US suffers #CongressionalShutdown while elites play games.
Lament of the Government Worker
Some of us are called to service
working for our nation’s purpose.
Our individual self-worth is
satisfied through social justice.
Our government was founded
on the rights of opportunity.
Democracy is grounded
on the principle of liberty.
I ask you now; how free am I
if, as I serve the public realm,
my government declines my pay
while Congress refuses to man the helm?
Tweet me your thoughts #htspoetweet on this or trees or any aspect of life in the Heights.
Your friendly neighborhood Poet Laureate, Kathleen Cerveny
