A Poem by Andrea Heiberg

In loving memory of my dear friend Andrea Heiberg, a poem she wrote for/about the United States after the 2016 election.  Posted here posthumously, with prior permission granted by Andrea.

Declaration of Independence II

Who’s the lady with the torch
Boko Haram hates to see?
Who’d bid me welcome
if it should be?

She’s my independent friend who
voices freedom
loving
care.

She’s still standing
sending out hope
to me
and
my sisters in
Afghanistan,
Nepal,
Nigeria,
Syria
and elsewhere
everywhere
when not grabbed by her pussy.

So go
Pearl,
go.
