for a woman, it is long overdue

the old, white
guys need
to give it up
(cash it in
by the billion),
and there is
a kid who has
shown up.
he is young,
he’s attractive,
he’s articulate,
he’s clever
but he needs
curing and
maturing
now
more than
ever,
but there is
scant time left.
let’s choose
a woman
who has the
political savvy,
gravitas, heart
and experience’s
heft,
and by the way,
democrats, what,
in this dire political
day,
happened to the
candidates of color —
you, know, the
prosecutors,
attorneys and
rhodes scholars,
the ones kind of
like the great,
barack obama?
