National Poetry Month - 2

Ides of March

Caesar’s blood-stained toga     still

Held in reverence

With flowers                I saw them

Gandhi’s concrete footsteps    preserved

From that last walk

In the garden         I saw them too

MLK’s “I have a dream”            speech

At Lincoln’s Memorial

I stood there            on that stone

How many lie today                still

In blood-soaked garments

The Ides                        March on

Before

                     Our

                                           Eyes

I walked today where Caesar walked!

The Forum in Rome.
