Are There MAGA Poets?

The poetry I read and attempt to write feels like it is inspired by –what would it be called?–a creative, almost spiritual source.

Suddenly I try to imagine what kind of poem a MAGA devotee would write, so I looked it up on Google.  First I came up with The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump by Rob Sears.  Since it was “unauthorized,” I decided that wouldn’t be fair, so I persevered in my internet search.  Under a search phrase of Poetry by Conservatives I found Rob Sears had authored another book,  Vladimir Putin: Life Coach, which had no customer reviews but earned a 4-star rating.  “Be the dictator you’ve always dreamed of being, with this handy guide to life inspired by everyone’s favourite autocrat.”   You’ve got to know that I wondered if this was on the level, or a spoof, so I looked further.  Maybe poetry wasn’t indexed by the political leanings of the editor, or even the poet?  I tried some more:  Oh, I see…I got a peek under the first poem’s title and it wasn’t written by Donald Trump, I can tell you!

So, how about looking up conservatives by their name and see what poetry they’ve written?  I looked–surely there are some MAGA folks who wrote poetry before Trump tricked them?  If you look, and find them please let me know….This can be continued in a subsequent blog.  I’m really curious.

LITERATURE

1. William Wordsworth, ‘London, 1802’.

2. Percy Shelley, ‘England in 1819

3. Ambrose Bierce, ‘A Political Apostate’.

4. Emma Lazarus, ‘The New Colossus’.

5. Rudyard Kipling, ‘Recessional’.

6. W. B. Yeats, ‘Easter 1916’.

7. e. e. cummings, ‘next to of course god america ’.

8. W. H. Auden, ‘September 1, 1939’ 
9. Audre Lorde, ‘Coal’.  Since Lorde was a self-described ‘Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, and poet she appears not have been a conservative, nor was number 10:.
10. Nikki Giovanni, ‘Rosa Parks’.

(This may have been a thankless research project but– under the Google entry “Political poetry” is the definition:  “poetry that is related to activism, protest, and social concern, or that is commenting on social, political, or current events. Read poems for social justice, politics, Black Lives Matter, and protest.”  (Doesn’t sound real conservative…)
