“Another Day At A City Council Meeting with Regina Romero and Others (a sonnet for Sally Roundhouse and Casa Libre’s 500 Sonnet Challenge)” by Felicia Chew

20180527_201905At the City Council meeting tonight
Listening to the reports of others
A few sharing the community’s plight
While others shared of exciting offers.

A new youth center planning to be built
On our recognized award winning base
While neighbors struggle and even feel guilt
For asking for stop signs to keep kids safe.

Rise up, my neighbors, it’s time to speak up!
It is okay to ask for safety needs,
Not many think about an equal cut,
Or fair and equitable policies!

Speak up, Tucsonans, make your voices heard,
For if not, we’ll have policies absurd.
