A Pollster called last night
about the Presidential election
here in America. Asked what issues
matter most to me I kept it simple:
"Ending the Israel-Palestine conflict."
She was startled but kind,
warm- wanted me to help work
on the Obama campaign.
Campaigns are everywhere
some formal and named, some not.
We volunteer to notice, elect to
make some news more important
help polls and surveys
and wishful thinking come true
in different ways.
When I say "Our words have a way
of echoing out into either war or peace"
I do not just mean ours - and America
But yours too... everywhere
everyone weighing in.
