George McGovern Is Dying

Ode to An American Hero

George McGovern nears
death reminding me of
a time when we struggled

to overcome the corrupted
cops and military when
we were awakening to
life versus death many
of us heeding the call to
change the world i raise
my banner high in gratitude
for a human being of great
light ninety years with us
a great help, but we need
so much more right now
in the year of his leaving
good-bye George you have
earned your rest may you
be born again in many young
peace makers who see these
great evils for the death and sin
that they really are and believe
in life and love, adios.
