John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Held much power as president –
But when it came to his mortality –
He held no more power than any
Other American resident

Notes to this poem…
A true poem, albeit a cheap one predicated upon the rhyme between resident and president. I’m not sure what else I can say about it.
Hey, you can’t like all the poems you write, right?
The O-series of poems are one stanza poems composed before I got onto writing haiku and tanka, and short poetry while in action or traveling by select means like plane or ferry. These poems are 3-9 lines long with at least one rhyming couplet, and not of the short forms just mentioned. For the sake of elegance, I just called the collection One.
