I wasn't going to make it to the Poetry Friday Roundup today but while chauffeuring my kids around, I heard an interview on NPR with a guy who wrote poems on the 2008 election. Anyone who says he was inspired to write poetry by John Sununu is worth a read, don't you think?
Anyway, here is a taste of Deciding the Next Decider by Calvin Trillin':
On a Clear Day, I See Vladivostok
(The Barbra Streisand standard as sung by Sarah Palin)
On a clear day
I see Vladivostok,
So I know world affairs.
(For the rest of the poem, follow the above link.)
More poetry over at Mommy's Favorite Children's Books.
