BeasPeas, I have never heard of this poetic format, but based upon your author's notes, you seemed to have mastered the format.

I like your metaphor to describe the change of an era. This metaphor could be used to describe the change of the presidency.

Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Friend. Thank you for your review. Yes, that is the meaning of it. There is much rancor when elections go one way or the other, but we all have to remember that one side has a chance and then the other side. It all evens out in the end, even when we don't like the outcome. Neither side can get its own way all the time. It's all give and take. The form is one that I created. Marilyn

Veryrrr good. Wish I had a six for this one. You understand what Einstein knew. Are you as smart as he was? Maybe! That might be why I like your poetry even tho I don't read much poetry. :)

This form is bound to catch on with the other poets here on FS.
Your post reads smoothly and follows the form perfectly.
It's quite the subject for the day of the presidential inauguration.

I agree: 'Time pulls the strings.
It changes things.'

I was pleased to see you posted another of your appealing, Bookend Monorhymes. I liked your political commentary and quote from Einstein. Cheers- Joan

This is so true. Einstein was a very wise man and I have always been particularly drawn to his quotes because of his spiritual nature which most folks don't even get about him. I loved this piece and so timely as the pendulum is about to swing in a new direction once again. Nicely done and thank you very much for sharing it.

I love the form for this and the rhyme. Excellent job - very descriptive. Nice use of wording such as 'petulant', 'acrimony', and 'assuage'.

Time pulls the strings.
It changes things. - doesn't it just.

Excellent poem (if not your politics) :) The next few days will be interesting. As you opined, 'Time will tell.'

I really like Your "Bookend" form, and I'm trying to remember to give it a whirl.

    Hi Don. Thank you for your review and comments. I think we can all agree that we want unification and I pray we can achieve that. Otherwise, as they say, it's like swallowing poison and waiting for the other person to die. Marilyn

That brainiac was a vegetarian. His picture was up in a vegan eatery, Loving Hut in Claremont, California. Interesting quote. And you are utilizing vocabulary in this poem. Well thought out and nicely written. Great flow of rhymes. Nice poem :)

The next four years will be interesting or tragic. President Trump will either succeed or fail in a big way. The catch is we are along for the ride wether we want to be or not so hang on to your hat
It's gonna be a bumpy ride. Thank you for sharing your work.
