Letter to the Editor - The Lakeville Journal - 5-18-23

An honorable pair

I gorge on the national news

Tho’ It seeds indigestion, elicits the blues

Yet being in Connecticut hope doth rise

With two US Senators, each fair and wise


Chris Murphy, the younger of the two

Has mettle, courage to say what’s true

He’s championed the victims of school shootings

Steadfastly rails against democracy looting


Richard Blumenthal CT rep, senator, five times AG

He’s smart, tenacious, clearly sees,

Injustice, ineptness, falseness unreined

He’ imbued with facts, not egregious claims

The US Senate has shrunk in talent, of soul

Some there seek nada, devoid of goals

For some silence seems the prudent stance

As they sit out the save our democracy dance


Connecticut a most fortunate state

Senators capable, competent, first rate

Leaning in where it truly matters

Amid those who kneel, fib & flatter


Jointly sponsoring S.951, a gun bill

CT Senators toil to stop the kill

At schools, of neighbors, the kid at a door

Cease the ravaging by weapons of war


Here’s to honor, to reputable deeds

Truth and strength from those who lead

Appreciation to those who do stand tall

Here’s to Murphy and to Blumenthal


Regard the Honour and moral Character of the Man more than all other Circumstances. Think of no other Greatness but that of the soul, no other Riches but those of the Heart.

—John Adams
