There are leaders
like Larissa

who will bring out
a breast in parliament

because that’s where nations
need mothering the most.

And leaders
like Jacinda

who will cradle a baby
in the United Nations

because we all need reminding
who we’re fighting for.

 

For Larissa Waters, Jacinda Arden and other leaders like them.

I am writing 30 Poems in November to support the Center for New Americans which provides English language classes, education support and legal services assistance for immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Please see my campaign page to support this cause.
