Ode to Hilary

Ode to Hilary

A man of color maybe a fine choice,

But the women of America have been waiting for their voice.

Some say you remind them of their mothers, and that may be true,

But when I look very closely you are the female face in every hue.

It has been a long run and you are almost there,

So don’t let the male media paint you as a picture of despair.

Hilary, take it to the convention and let America choose,

Don’t let us believe that super delegates decide “sorry you loose.”

We fought for the right to vote when men said we weren’t worthy to play,

How do those men think they got here anyway?

I support your fight as your name sits on my lawn,

Don’t let them use you as some political pawn.

I think Gloria Steinham was right to say,

Men have had their chance now get out of the way.

It’s been 225 plus years for them to get it right,

And all Bush has done is turn it into a war and a fight.

It’s not about money, oil or war,

It’s about compassion, promise and chance to soar.

Don’t let them get you down don’t let them make you quit,

You decide for all of us, show them you can take the hits.

Women are counting on you everywhere; this is our time to shine

Come November 2008 it will have been worth the long climb!

Go get ‘em Hilary!!!


One of my oldest and dearest friends wrote this. She isn't generally a writer. I still don't know who I want to win the nomination, but I liked this. She gave me permission to post. So Morello, this is for you.

I wish I could say I agree but Hilary does not reflect my brown face. And that's not why I should or would vote for someone. It's what they believe in, stand for... not how they look. If that is the criteria we were to go by, than who, as a queer woman of color should I vote for? The brown face or the woman. Seems like a no-win situation so instead I'm going to vote with my heart you know.

I'll say this: though I do support Mr. Obama more I'll have no problem voting for Mrs. Clinton if she wins enough delegates. I really do like some of her thoughts on education & immigration. Peace!

I just wanted to let you know that HG bought me a new Axe. It's a big one so no need to bring yours to San Francisco.
