New Challenge: To Reject Trump the Perverse, Poets Wage a Battle in Verse – An Excerpt

(This may be an alternate truth) from Nicholas Kristof 9-2- 2017: NY Times Op-Ed page

trump-poetry-illegalSome people stand up to President Trump in the courts, others in street protests. And the poets among us, they battle President Trump with an arsenal of verse….

Susan McLean, a poet and English professor at Southwest Minnesota State University:

Trump seethes at what the writers say.
He’ll pull the plug on the N.E.A.
The joke’s on him. Art doesn’t pay.
We write our satires anyway.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
