Quiet Neighborhoods – Your Weekly Poetry Prompt 8/28/2020

I live in a quiet neighborhood,
most neighbors go to work each day
and spend evening time with their family.
Kids ride bikes and scooters all afternoon.

We hear the cries for social change
in a time of social distance.
We stay at home, hope for the best,
and won’t notice if it goes back to the way it was.

So raise up your leaders,
protect them from our tyranny through complacency,
put them in places we cannot ignore
and vote, god help you, vote.
