In Appreciation of the Governor’s Recent Choice…

This past Wednesday, Governor Patrick announced his appointment to serve as interim US Senator: William “Mo” Cowan, who just happens to be a friend of ours.

We salute you Mo, with the words of one of your favorite poets, Langston Hughes.

Democracy

Democracy will not come

Today, this year

Nor ever

Through compromise and fear.

 

I have as much right

As the other fellow has

To stand

On my two feet

And own the land.

 

I tire so of hearing people say,

Let things take their course.

Tomorrow is another day.

I do not need my freedom when I am dead.

I cannot live on tomorrow’s bread.

 

Freedom

Is a strong seed

Planted

In great need.

 

I live here, too.

I want freedom

Just as you.
