Poems for Conservatives
Politics and More
Pat Morrell-Donnelly’s “Poems For Conservatives” book is a part 2 or sequel to her first “Poems For Conservatives” book published in 2010. Her first book contained post cards and letters from three former Presidents and a First Lady in response to poems Pat had written and sent to them. Both books contain political-type poems. Poems in her sequel, her second book, Pat wrote between 2010 and 2022. In 2015 Pat had hip replacement, and her husband had a massive stroke. There did not seem to be time or inclination to write. In 2021 Pat’s husband passed away, she moved, again, leaving little time for writing. Pat feels at her age, these last days of her life, she needs to get the poems into a book or they will die in her computer when she passes away. They will be lost and gone forever. Perhaps in distant future years there will be those interested in events that occurred in our country’s previous years. Thoughts in rhyme makes it easy to read. The poems speak to events, and about those in power at different given times. The poems reveal what was happening, politically, through those years. Questions to ponder: Did parties in power serve their constituents or was it about power and greed? Sadly with the Biden Administration it was the latter plus utter incompetence. Were “powers that be” abiding by the Constitution? Were they interested in limited government or about controlling people’s lives? Did they believe in free speech and the 2nd Amendment? Did they believe in abortion? Did they believe in free enterprise, free market? Were they for or against redistribution of wealth? Most of these things are concerns of Conservatives. Most have heard the three most important things in life are God, Family, and Country. These make for a strong, free America.
