Editor's/Poet's Notes: The main reason why Songs of Eretz is not and never will be a not-for-profit entity is that it would limit our ability to publish poems such as this one. This poem expresses political opinions and facts that many poetry venues will not or are legitimately afraid to publish. There is a definite bias against liberals and in favor of President Trump. Disturbingly, the poet/editor wonders what price he will pay for being so bold as to publish his poem--something to which until recently he would not have given a second thought. The Dickinsonian "this" that ends the poem screams volumes.
Many political poems have appeared in Songs of Eretz over the years. Simply click on "Politics" in our "Labels" section to sample them. Note that poems of all political stripes have been published here, though there is a definite conservative bias. Feel free to submit them. But if you do, make sure you back up your words with references (and if you find you cannot, best keep your words to yourselves).
