The Totally Optional Prompt is 'Reflections on the Primary'

The recently concluded Democratic caucuses and primary elections will result in the nomination of Barack Obama. Write a poem that reflects on this unprecedented, overrated, historic, conflicted, significant, never ending event that is only an intermediate step in the election process.

Remarks on the prompt, your latest poetry discovery, or this 'poetry exchange' blog can be made as comments to this posting. Late Wednesday night, between one rerun and another, I'll post a Request For Poems, where you can leave a link to your poem inspired by the prompt, or any other poem you want to share.
