Columbus Day

Post by SamoGreen »

Why didn't anyone understand these important ideas

Why don't we grasp these fleeting incentives

Why can't we trust our imagination

And peak from the veil

But clocks they run

Only for the moment

While locked in torment

Understand this warning

Of our conforming

Christopher Columbus

He only discovered

White America



Im new to writing poetry and song writing. Thank you for reading my poem and if you have any advice please feel free to share.

'Fraid I'm not the best person to advise on poetry but I'm sure that the poets in the Garden will appreciate the opportunity.

In the meantime, welcome :-6

The location is fine - we don't generally quibble about thing like that unless it is deliberately inflammatory :-)
