Here's To You Mrs. Robinson of Today

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

Remembering you Mrs. Robinson,

I'll remember you more then you'll know.

Your blessing please Mrs. Robinson

your era holds sway even today.


We'd like to know what they hide

in those files.

He'd like to hide you behind talks

about himself.

Look around all you see is patriotic

eyes.

There is no safe grounds, no place

to call our home.

No longer need to hide in places

where no one ever goes.

It's no secret anymore.

The hardest part is hiding

how the kids have been

exposed.


Remembering you Mrs. Robinson.

I'll remember you more then you'll know.

Your blessings please Mrs. Robinson

your era holds sway even today.


Sitting on the sofa like every afternoon

listen to loss of political discourse.

"Laugh about it, shout about it,

when you got to choose."

There is no escaping the ruse.

There no longer exists a decent

role model.

A nation has forgot that you

exist.

All have left and gone away.


Here's to remembering you

Mrs. Robinson. I'll remember you

more then you will ever know.

Your blessing please Mrs. Robinson

your era holds sway even today.
