To say I am distracted is an understatement. I can describe what I’ve done: pour coffee in the cat’s water bowl, tuck the milk in the pantry next to the Rice Chex, and then squeeze Colgate Multi-whitening onto my hairbrush, and you have an idea of my morning.
Now the level has risen to major irritation. And I suppose that’s what the governor of the great state of South Carolina feels on her second inaugural morning. Major irritation. If you haven’t heard, the governor cut our state’s poet laureate duties – Marjory Wentworth caused an uproar with her writing – because she wrote a poem about the not-so-smiling history of this state. Read her inaugural poem without the inaugural audience at WRVO’s site…
Whew, I feel better just sharing this with more people! Exactly what I need to do. And so do you. Regardless of your political, poetic or other opinions, please get the word out that South Carolina clicked the clock hands back. When the world is dealing with huge issues, the foremost one on the state’s political agenda is an inaugural poem.
The thoughts and opinions are my own. But I love company, so leave a comment to let me know we were hanging out for a few minutes today.
