Bro Code

It's the New Year
Pope Francis is still yakking
about the world's ills

and that we have

a "responsibility" to work towards
a worldwide
"community of brothers"

(and knowing him

probably sisters too)

who accept

each other's "diversity"
and "take care
of one another".

So this poet will

get off her
liberal duff
reach across the aisle

and wish Barbara Bush

a speedy recovery
who also said

"You get nothing done

if you don't listen to each other."
