I had to look up ‘ode,' before attempting to write one. An ode, in my favorite online dictionary, is defined as “a lyric poem expressive of exalted or enthusiastic emotion.” ‘Emotion?' In my ode, there's some of that. ‘Exaltation?' I'm sure hoping so, if this ode gets you thinking, some, freedom and democracy. Image result for public domain pictures of freedom I'm sounding syrupy, I suppose, but full steam ahead! Here's my first-ever ode: Oh thee among us, now So desirous of dictators, now Of thee, we lament An authoritarian strutting, hyperbolizing and deceiving, some A dictator-in-waiting's will must not be done… even some Let those who diminish freedom know our commitment, some To freedom surging on Keep dictators-in-waiting from our hearts and souls And make them rethink goals Keep freedom surging on!
