The Loser after the Election

3 Word Wednesday: Disarray. Rabble. Validate. This week I'm departing from tradition: instead of a haiku, a triolet.

How can you validate this rabble
that throws society in disarray
like shaking up a set of Scrabble?
How can you validate this rabble,
this so-called democratic Babel
that took my privileges away?
How can you validate this rabble
that throws society in disarray?

Collection available! Knocking from Inside

Love the title. But in this most recent election, I think it was not the rabble that won but the higher hopes we have for ourselves.

The poem has a Seussian flavor, and what I love about it is I can hear the speaker's tone in it. Well done.

Indeed. Strong words and powerful thoughts.

Wonderful triolet.

Very effectively penned and enjoyably read; one doesn't see many of these crafted these days, and you have crafted well.

I like the shift in emphasis, and hence meaning in the last repetition of the refrain. Of course, that is required in a triolet, but excellent jobs deserve praise.
