I hope we succeed in doing just that! Indeed, only the people can. Well said, with directness. The simplicity lends it potent authenticity. The artwork is cool, too!

Warmly, rd

Bill, I rarely review these days. My time is taken up elsewhere. But I had to visit.

I am not a proficient reviewer on such short poetic styles, much less longer ones! Lol

However, this is an extremely important message. If writers are going to use the Fanstory platform in any department to peruse as a testament to their will and belief, then politics is just as fine a genre as religion.

Love it and you know this to be true of me. A six my friend. A six...

This political 5-7-5, A Call to Arms, has the right set up and sides with a sea change for the 2020s. Too late for that now. Dems aren't as good as Trump is bad. His cult status will defy removal.

I think this is a good entry for the Political 5-7-5 writing prompt.
This short verse tells a strong truth, in my opinion.
Well done and I wish you luck with the contest.

The image you chose and the words you wrote deftly describe the turmoil our political system is in. May your voice be strong and convey this message throughout the coming electoral year.

This is really a bit simplistic, but somehow it works. You convey a truthful message without beating around the bush. I enjoyed reading this and obviously I am in agreement. Good luck in both voting booths!

Classic ... it has a heart of an elephant with the amazing tome of a crescendo of falling bricks with a delicate resounding emphasis on the democratic will of a nation born free ... just like this piece!

You've written an excellent 5-7-5 poem for the contest
on this divisive situation where regardless of result,
half the country will be opposed to the result.
The vote of the people is the only hope,
but special interest groups will fill the airways will their ads.
Lets hope the result is by a large margin.
Best wishes in the contest
Robert

This is a great entry for the political 575 contest. Your syllable count is correct. I am personally hoping he loses the election, but who knows if anyone else would be any better. Great job and thank you for sharing.

You followed the 5-7-5 rules very well and for that I will give you a five. Not crazy about using politics but it does follow the rules as I said. The people in our country need to take a step back and and remember One Nation, One Country and try to get along no matter who our President it.
