Grassroots Nation by Catana Barnes

Today we continue our celebration of National Poetry Month with an original poem written by Catana Barnes from Nevada.



This great experiment referred to as Democracy

seized at dawn’s early light by patriots of hypocrisy

party lines drawn in the sand

choose a side or take a stand

grassroots nation seeking reform

survival relies on new ways to perform.


New_Catana_2a - Copy (2)Catana Barnes is the founder and President of Independent Voters of Nevada.



Our celebration of National Poetry month continues

throughout April with poems chosen or written by P4P members.
