VOTE…a story poem

VOTE

jailed
beaten
their hair pulled
force fed
their medication withheld
handcuffed to the bars
of their damp moldy cells
women fought
for the right to vote
the only way to properly
THANK THEM
is to
do it

VOTE

  4. You know 2020 marks 100 years that women have had the right to vote. We need to make the centennial historic in another way with massive numbers of women exercising their right to vote. Grab him by the BALLotS!!!!

    • We do indeed. He’s trying to get suburban women to vote for him and we have to stop that from happening…I just don’t know how anymore. When Deb and I were woring with NOW we went door to door and then we handed out leaflets at the train station, we did a lot of things to get Carol Mosely Braun elected. Those things are happening right now.
